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 Wonga Beach and Spas & Wellness. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Historic Village Herberton and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda), Curtain Fig National Park (in Yungaburra) and Sunday Market Port Douglas (in Port Douglas). There's lots more to do: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, view the masterpieces at Doongal Aboriginal Art, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands.

For other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Cairns are 88°F, while nighttime lows are 73°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
