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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Safaris. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Sunday Market Port Douglas, Studio 49 Artisan Gallery, & more), Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 1st (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre, take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery, and browse the exhibits of Doongal Aboriginal Art Gallery Cairns.

If you are flying in from Kazakhstan, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
