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.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Sat): take in the waterfront at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk and then look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas. On the next day, look for all kinds of wild species at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk.

Plan my trip to Cairns with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Use the Route module to find travel options from your starting location to Cairns. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in February, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
