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: Paronella Park (in Mena Creek), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 1st (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 11th (Thu) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, and don't miss a visit to Green Island.

To see traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Cairns travel route planning tool .

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
