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 in touch with nature at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Esplanade Boardwalk. Change things up with a short trip to Four Mile Beach in Port Douglas (about 1h 15 min away). There's more to do: identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge and take in the waterfront at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk.

For where to stay, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Cairns trip planner .

July in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
