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.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Fri): take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, then admire the masterpieces at Cairns Art Gallery, and finally step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.

To find maps, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary builder .

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
