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.
Visit Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach for some beach relaxation. Get some cultural insight at St Monica's Cathedral and Bones and Jones. Step out of Cairns to go to Palm Cove and see Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, which is approximately 44 minutes away. Spend the 17th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 20th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, and explore the world behind art at Samurai Gallery Australia.

Montreal, Canada to Cairns is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of bus and flight. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Queensland) (AEST), which is usually a 15 hour difference. Traveling from Montreal in December, things will get much warmer in Cairns: highs are around 36°C and lows about 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 21st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
