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.
Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Safaris. We've included these beaches for you: Thornton Beach and Four Mile Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan) and Port Douglas (Horses in Port & Coffee Works Port Douglas).

To find more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns day trip app .

London, UK to Cairns is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 10 hours traveling from London to Cairns. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from London in September: high temperatures in Cairns hover around 33°C and lows are around 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Glass House Mountains.
