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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Historic Village Herberton and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Millaa Millaa (Ellinjaa Falls, Millaa Millaa Lookout, & more), Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park) and Atherton (Nandroya Falls, Hou Wang Temple, & more). Spend the 1st (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 13th (Wed) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Cove Beach, don't miss a visit to St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, and admire all the interesting features of Hartley's Crocodile Adventures.

For more things to do, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, read our Cairns trip planner .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
