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 23rd (Sat): discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour. On the 24th (Sun), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, then take in the exciting artwork at Village Gallery, and finally kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach.

To find where to stay, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip planner.

In February, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
