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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 15th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
