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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Rex Lookout (in Wangetti), Palm Cove (Spas, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more) and Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, & more). Spend the 21st (Wed) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's much more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and make a trip to Green Island.

For more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Cairns road trip tool .

Ballarat to Cairns is an approximately 7-hour combination of shuttle and flight. You can also do a combination of train, shuttle, and flight; or drive. Traveling from Ballarat in August, expect Cairns to be warmer, temps between 31°C and 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
