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 Thornton Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures), Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). Spend the 28th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach and identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge.

To find other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns online itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, 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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
