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 The Peterson Creek Walking Track and Shark Diving. Take a break from the city and head to Yorkeys Knob Beach and Michaelmas Cay. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, take in the dramatic scenery at Crystal Cascades, make a trip to Regency Jewellers Pty Ltd, and admire the masterpieces at Samurai Gallery Australia.

To see photos, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns online trip planner .

In December in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Fri) so you can travel back home.
