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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Historic Village Herberton. Get outdoors at Atherton Tablelands and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Safaris, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more), Humpy Nut World (in Atherton) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 19th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 16th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For reviews and tourist information, go to the Cairns itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July in Cairns, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
