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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Atherton Tablelands and Sunday Market Port Douglas. Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton).

To find maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Cairns attractions planner .

In January, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
