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.
Shop till you drop at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Cairns Art Gallery. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Des Spencer Galleries and Ngarru Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 22nd (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find where to stay, reviews, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Cairns visit planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In January in Cairns, expect temperatures between 89°F during the day and 75°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
