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. Do some cultural sightseeing at Daintree Discovery Centre and St Monica's Cathedral. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Funstuff by Lynda, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 15th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Smithfield Shopping Centre, stop by Luminous Lights, take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones, and hunt for treasures at Rusty's Market.

To find where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip builder website .

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