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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). There's lots more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.

To find photos, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Cairns day trip planning site .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
