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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Annie's Ladies Boutique, & more). Spend the 22nd (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, don't miss a visit to Green Island, and take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones.

In December in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
