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.
Step out of the city life by going to Fishing Charters & Tours and Curtain Fig National Park. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Opal Reef and Photography Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 4th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 16th (Fri) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Birdworld Kuranda, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, and admire the sheer force of Millaa Millaa Falls.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
