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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Village Gallery and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Spend the 4th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
