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. Visiting Safaris and Esplanade Boardwalk will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 14th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises.

Plan my trip to Cairns with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

In August in Cairns, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
