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.
Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 18th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 13th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk and see what you can catch with a fishing tour.

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip builder tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 79°F, while at night they dip to 66°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
