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 hidden gems such as Sunday Market Port Douglas and Kayaking & Canoeing. Get in touch with nature at Curtain Fig National Park and Granite Gorge Nature Park. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Spend the 2nd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand, get a new perspective on nature at The Crystal Caves, head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, and explore the striking landscape at Babinda Boulders.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July in Cairns, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
