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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Daintree Discovery Centre and Village Gallery. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Floravilla Ice Cream Factory. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach & Safaris). Spend the 3rd (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 29th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find photos, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
