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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Kuranda Scenic Railway. Family-friendly places like Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Next up on the itinerary: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, read Cairns online journey planner .

Expect a daytime high around 31°C in August, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
