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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre and Josephine Falls. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Yungaburra (Platypus Viewing Platform, Curtain Fig National Park, & more) and Photography Tours (in Daintree). Spend the 17th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, see the vivid underwater world at Opal Reef, and relax in the rural setting at Jaques Coffee Plantation.

In July, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
