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 find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Spas & Palm Cove Beach), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). Spend the 22nd (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, enjoy some diversion at Muddy's Playground, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

For photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns travel planner .

In July, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
