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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Etty Bay and Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle. Take a break from the city and head to Opal Reef and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Malanda Falls (in Malanda) and Daintree (Daintree Tea & Floravilla Ice Cream Factory). Spend the 29th (Thu) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 23rd (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand, take in the dramatic natural features at Babinda Boulders, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.

Plan trip to Cairns with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

In August, daytime highs in Cairns are 31°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
