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.
Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Safaris will get you outdoors. Go for a jaunt from Cairns to Palm Cove to see Hartley's Crocodile Adventures about 44 minutes away. There's more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk.

For photos, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Cairns trip planning tool .

In August in Cairns, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 20°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
