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.
Visit Yorkeys Knob Beach and St Mary’s by The Sea chapel for their historical value. You'll explore and learn at The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour and The Crystal Caves. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba) and Port Douglas (Sunday Market Port Douglas & Fishing Charters & Tours). Spend the 8th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 11th (Tue) exploring nature at Millstream Falls National Park.

To find photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns online journey builder .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
