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 in touch with nature at Safaris and Four Mile Beach. Visit Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Horses in Port, & more), Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures) and The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre (in Atherton). Spend the 6th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 21st (Sun) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, take a memorable tour with Tours, and take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness.

For where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns route builder .

In July, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
