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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: 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. The adventure continues: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see ratings, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
