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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 3rd (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 8th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns route maker app .

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
