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. Go for a jaunt from Cairns to Wangetti to see Rex Lookout about 56 minutes away. Spend the 11th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral.

To see maps, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Cairns holiday planner.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
