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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Esplanade Boardwalk. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 3rd (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, don't miss a visit to Freshwater Station, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

For reviews, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip maker site .

Expect a daytime high around 31°C in August, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
