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 Safaris and Palm Cove Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Cow Bay Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park), Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures) and Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan). Spend the 6th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 19th (Sat) exploring nature at Mowbray National Park. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Yorkeys Knob Beach, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see maps, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns travel route planning website .

January in Cairns sees daily highs of 37°C and lows of 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
