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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Historic Village Herberton. Step out of the city life by going to Atherton Tablelands and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 26th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find more things to do, maps, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns day trip planning site .

In December, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
