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 Scuba & Snorkeling and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures will get you outdoors. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Spas & Wellness (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). There's more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

For reviews, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns tour itinerary maker .

If you are flying in from China, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
