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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Horses in Port, & more). And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground, have some family-friendly fun at Laserfun, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find traveler tips, photos, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Cairns tour itinerary maker website .

July in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
