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.
Bring the kids along to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Popular historic sites such as St Monica's Cathedral and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Village Gallery & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 7th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery, take a memorable tour with Tours, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

To find photos, reviews, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Cairns road trip tool .

Melbourne to Cairns is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Traveling from Melbourne in February, things will get somewhat warmer in Cairns: highs are around 36°C and lows about 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
