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.
Escape the urban bustle at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness), Port Douglas (Safaris, Horses in Port, & more) and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda). Spend the 17th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 27th (Wed) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. February in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
