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.
Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Esplanade Boardwalk. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Four Mile Beach (in Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 16th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, photos, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns day trip planning app .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. December in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
