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.
You'll explore and learn at Historic Village Herberton and Bones and Jones. Family-friendly places like Daintree Discovery Centre and Four Mile Beach will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan), Thornton Beach (in Thornton Beach) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 30th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 2nd (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. The adventure continues: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, explore the galleries of Doongal Aboriginal Art Gallery Cairns, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

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 2nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
