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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Visit St Monica's Cathedral and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay). Spend the 29th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 5th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, and learn about all things military at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June in Cairns, expect temperatures between 79°F during the day and 66°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
