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.
Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). Spend the 3rd (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
