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.
Kids will enjoy Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas and Palm Cove Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Village Gallery, & more), Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Agincourt Reef, & more) and Cow Bay (Cow Bay Beach & Daintree Discovery Centre). Spend the 30th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 7th (Wed) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, make a trip to Green Island, and identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge.

For other places to visit, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, read Cairns tour itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
