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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 3rd (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find maps, where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Cairns route maker website .

In June, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
