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 Safaris and Four Mile Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more), Port Douglas (Agincourt Reef, The Bump Track, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park). Spend the 11th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 26th (Mon) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, get interesting insight from Tours, and stroll through Trinity Beach.

To find reviews, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns road trip site .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. August in Cairns sees daily highs of 31°C and lows of 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
