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.
Take a break from the city and head to Wonga Beach and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Cow Bay Beach and Thornton Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Atherton (The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre & The Crystal Caves), Herberton (Historic Village Herberton & Spy & Camera Museum) and Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Kayaking & Canoeing, & more). Spend the 22nd (Sat) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 30th (Sun) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, see the vivid underwater world at Opal Reef, take a memorable tour with Tours, and kick back and relax at Etty Bay.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns driving holiday app .

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
