Cairns

A neat, cosmopolitan city of shaded plazas and laid-back neighborhoods, Cairns serves as a popular base for exploration of the surrounding region and the Great Barrier Reef, as well as a center for watersport activities like surfing or waterskiing.
Escape the urban bustle at Four Mile Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll get in some beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (The Reef Marina, Safaris, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). The adventure continues: get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre, hunt for treasures at Rusty's Market, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, and look for gifts at Australian Leather Company.

For photos, maps, and other tourist information, use the Cairns trip itinerary planning website .

June in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
