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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). Spend the 14th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
