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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Thornton Beach and Etty Bay. Get outdoors at Opal Reef and Shark Diving. Venture out of the city with trips to Babinda Boulders (in Babinda), Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda) and Yungaburra (Cathedral Fig Tree, The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour, & more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Historic Village Herberton, kick back and relax at Wonga Beach, relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand, and head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay.

In February, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
