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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Popular historic sites such as Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral are in your itinerary. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Kuranda (Emu Ridge Gallery & Birdworld Kuranda), Yungaburra (Lake Barrine, Curtain Fig National Park, & more) and Port Douglas (Horseback Riding Tours, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 11th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 21st (Mon) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, enjoy the sand and surf at Thornton Beach, and experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
