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.
Shop till you drop at Coffee Works and Smithfield Shopping Centre. Get in touch with nature at Safaris and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (With Sugar, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Kuranda (Australian Butterfly Sanctuary & Doongul Aboriginal Art Gallery). Spend the 11th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 18th (Tue) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. The adventure continues: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

Make your Cairns itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
