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: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 10th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

In January in Cairns, expect temperatures between 37°C during the day and 28°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
