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.
Daintree Discovery Centre and Daintree Entomological museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris), Thornton Beach (in Thornton Beach) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 3rd (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take a memorable tour with Tours, and don't miss a visit to Freshwater Station.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, plan for daily highs up to 88°F, and evening lows to 75°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
