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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 9th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 12th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground, walk around Munro Martin Parklands, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In August in Cairns, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
