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 discover tucked-away gems like Sunday Market Port Douglas and Curtain Fig National Park. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, Safaris, & more) and Atherton (Humpy Nut World & The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre). Spend the 15th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 5th (Sun) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, and admire the sheer force of Millaa Millaa Falls.

To see other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns online journey planner .

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
