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.
Get outdoors at Michaelmas Cay and Scuba & Snorkeling. We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel & Safaris), Artistree Gallery (in Yungaburra) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands.

Find out how to plan Cairns trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in February, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
