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 discover tucked-away gems like Etty Bay and Opal Reef. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Walu Wugirriga Lookout (in Cow Bay) and The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour (in Yungaburra). There's lots more to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, and take in the dramatic natural features at Babinda Boulders.

In June, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
