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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). Spend the 26th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Cairns day trip app .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
