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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Spas & Wellness and Historic Village Herberton. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 16th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: identify plant and animal life at Michaelmas Cay and experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand.

To find more things to do, photos, reviews, and tourist information, read Cairns tour itinerary maker tool .

In June, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
