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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 22nd (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, admire the sheer force of Josephine Falls, get interesting insight from Tours, and make a trip to Green Island.

In December in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
