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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Opal Reef and Michaelmas Cay. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Historic Village Herberton and Bones and Jones. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Kayaking & Canoeing (in Palm Cove), Walu Wugirriga Lookout (in Cow Bay) and Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda). Spend the 9th (Sat) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, admire the sheer force of Josephine Falls, cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, and get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

For photos, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns driving holiday planning site .

In February, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
