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.
Ocean Free and Ocean Freedom has been added to your itinerary. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). And it doesn't end there: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

For where to stay, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Cairns vacation builder site .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
