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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Coffee Works, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park). Spend the 22nd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground, take a memorable tour with Tours, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.

To find more things to do, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
