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: Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 27th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 11th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, don't miss a visit to Green Island, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour.

If you are flying in from South Korea, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
