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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Coffee Works and Smithfield Shopping Centre. Popular historic sites such as Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, & more). There's much more to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, stop by Cairns Central Shopping Centre, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market.

To find maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Cairns trip itinerary maker .

In August in Cairns, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
