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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Underart Gallery. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Village Gallery), Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Floravilla Ice Cream Factory (in Daintree). Spend the 18th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: get curious at Daintree Discovery Centre, take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, and explore the galleries of Michael Seebeck Gallery.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
