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.
Head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Smithfield Shopping Centrefor some retail therapy. Get in touch with nature at Daintree Discovery Centre and Safaris. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 30th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, look for gifts at Australian Leather Company, and get out on two wheels at Trail Bike Adventures.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns online day trip planner .

In June, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
