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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, admire the natural beauty at Munro Martin Parklands, walk around Anzac Park, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Cairns road trip planning tool .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
