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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 1st (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, take a leisurely stroll along The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk, and sample the tasty concoctions at Blue Sky Brewery.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. July in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
