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.
You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour and Captain Cook Highway Rock Stacks. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman) and St Mary’s by The Sea chapel (in Port Douglas). Spend the 5th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands and admire the striking features of Freshwater Station.

For reviews, photos, maps, and more tourist information, read our Cairns trip planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
