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.
Escape the urban bustle at Cathedral Fig Tree and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sunday Market Port Douglas and Opal Reef. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, Safaris, & more), The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour (in Yungaburra) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 14th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands.

To find where to stay, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 79°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
