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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Get outdoors at Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Change things up with a short trip to Rex Lookout in Wangetti (about 56 minutes away). Spend the 19th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.

To find more things to do, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, read our Cairns driving holiday planning website .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Cairns are 37°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Tue) so you can travel back home.
