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.
Visiting Etty Bay and Opal Reef will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at Historic Village Herberton and The Crystal Caves. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Kuranda (Birdworld Kuranda, Honey House, & more), Mareeba (Jaques Coffee Plantation & Granite Gorge Nature Park) and The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre (in Atherton). Spend the 7th (Fri) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 19th (Wed) exploring nature at Eubenangee Swamp National Park. There's much more to do: see what you can catch with a fishing tour, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, take in the dramatic scenery at Josephine Falls, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Cairns vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

June in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
