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: Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Village Gallery, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 6th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground, don't miss a visit to Green Island, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

For reviews, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
