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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Smithfield Shopping Centre. Museum-lovers will appreciate Bones and Jones and Underart Gallery. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Funstuff by Lynda, Coffee Works, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). It doesn't end there: get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre.

For maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Cairns itinerary builder website .

In July, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
