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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Daintree Discovery Centre and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. Kids will enjoy Four Mile Beach and Thornton Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Rex Lookout (in Wangetti), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). Spend the 2nd (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary planner.

Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
