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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more), Cow Bay (Walu Wugirriga Lookout, Cow Bay Beach, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, Daintree National Park, & more). Spend the 1st (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

For photos, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary maker site .

In February in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
