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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 6th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground.

To see photos, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Cairns day trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Indonesia, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. January in Cairns sees daily highs of 37°C and lows of 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
