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.
Visiting Safaris and Four Mile Beach will get you outdoors. Take a break from Cairns with a short trip to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures in Palm Cove, about 44 minutes away. Spend the 4th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read Cairns trip planner.

In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
