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.
Attractions like Palm Cove Beach and Four Mile Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Visiting Safaris and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Horseback Riding Tours, Opal Reef, & more), Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more). Spend the 23rd (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, and get curious at Daintree Discovery Centre.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns online trip itinerary maker .

In June, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
