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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Visit Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park). Spend the 11th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, get interesting insight from Tours, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and explore the different monuments and memorials at McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary website .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 30°C, while at night they dip to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
