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.
Seastar Cruises Reef Day Trips has been added to your itinerary. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach & Safaris). Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

To see photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns day trip site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 80°F, while at night they dip to 63°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
