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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 23rd (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

If you are flying in from Hungary, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 31°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
