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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). The adventure continues: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

To find traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip itinerary planning site .

Expect a daytime high around 30°C in June, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
