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 Atherton Tablelands and Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle. When in Cairns, make a side trip to see Safaris in Port Douglas, approximately 1h 30 min away. Spend the 16th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral and identify plant and animal life at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk.

To see reviews, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Cairns travel route planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Cairns are 37°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
