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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Escape the urban bustle at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with a short trip to Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas in Port Douglas (about 1h 15 min away).

To find ratings, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Cairns trip itinerary builder website .

In February, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
