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.
Take a break from the city and head to Horseback Riding Tours and Opal Reef. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Red Arrow Walk and Atherton Tablelands. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more), Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 15th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Crystal Cascades, brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, and head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay.

For maps, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary maker website .

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 30°C in July, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
