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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more), Port Douglas (Eye to Eye Marine Encounters, Safaris, & more) and Cow Bay (Cow Bay Beach, Daintree Discovery Centre, & more). Spend the 24th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 11th (Thu) on the rails with a train tour. There's much more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

For photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip planner .

In June in Cairns, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 22°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
