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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness and Opal Reef. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more), Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Spend the 12th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Michaelmas Cay, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February in Cairns, expect temperatures between 88°F during the day and 75°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
