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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach for some beach relaxation. Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Horses in Port & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Kuranda (Australian Butterfly Sanctuary & Opal Time). There's much more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, sample the tasty concoctions at Blue Sky Brewery, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and admire the striking features of Freshwater Station.

Plan my Cairns trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
