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 Shark Diving and St Mary’s by The Sea chapel. Visiting Michaelmas Cay and Safaris will get you outdoors. When in Cairns, make a side trip to see Hartley's Crocodile Adventures in Palm Cove, approximately 44 minutes away.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip planning site .

In June, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
