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 Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 26th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

In December, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
