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 itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. For shopping fun, head to Sunday Market Port Douglas or Tanks Arts Centre. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Village Gallery) and Floravilla Ice Cream Factory (in Daintree). Spend the 19th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 26th (Fri) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for all kinds of wild species at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, stroll the grounds of McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Cairns trip simple and quick.

In July, daytime highs in Cairns are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
