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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Visit Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness) and Port Douglas (Eye to Eye Marine Encounters, Safaris, & more). Spend the 13th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 1st (Fri) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through Trinity Beach, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and don't miss a visit to Green Island.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns road trip tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
