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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Trinity Beach. The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Bones and Jones are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Village Gallery, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 3rd (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 30th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, get interesting insight from Tours, identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, and take in the dramatic scenery at Josephine Falls.

Sydney to Cairns is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Traveling from Sydney in June, things will get a bit warmer in Cairns: highs are around 30°C and lows about 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
