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.
Historic Village Herberton and Bones and Jones are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Discover out-of-the-way places like Wooroonooran National Park and Shark Diving. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Kayaking & Canoeing (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Horses in Port & Fishing Charters & Tours) and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 21st (Sun) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's much more to do: relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, admire the sheer force of Crystal Cascades, and explore the striking landscape at Babinda Boulders.

For more things to do, photos, ratings, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip website .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
