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.
Get in touch with nature at Babinda Boulders and Birdworld Kuranda. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Kayaking & Canoeing. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach & Safaris), Millaa Millaa Falls (in Millaa Millaa) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 4th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, and experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
