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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more) and Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove). There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take a memorable tour with Shaolin Junk Cruises, and stroll through Trinity Beach.

For other places to visit, maps, photos, and more tourist information, read our Cairns tour planner.

In June, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
