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 Daintree Discovery Centre and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Visit Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 7th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk.

To see ratings, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns tour planner.

If you are flying in from Brazil, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
