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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Smithfield Shopping Centrefor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (With Sugar, The Reef Marina, & more), Yungaburra Markets (in Yungaburra) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more). Spend the 29th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Spend the 11th (Sun) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's still lots to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and look for gifts at Cairns Central Shopping Centre.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
