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.
Visiting Safaris and Esplanade Boardwalk will get you outdoors. Visit Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). Spend the 15th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.

For ratings, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July in Cairns, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
