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 Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more), Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda) and Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more). Spend the 14th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take a memorable tour with Tours, make a trip to Green Island, and look for all kinds of wild species at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
