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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Funstuff by Lynda, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 12th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, get a taste of the local shopping with Doongal Aboriginal Art, and stop by Luminous Lights.

For more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Cairns tour website .

In August in Cairns, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
