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.
Get in touch with nature at The Peterson Creek Walking Track and Cathedral Fig Tree. Do your shopping at Cairns Art Gallery and Rusty's Market. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Four Mile Beach (in Port Douglas), Herberton (Historic Village Herberton & Spy & Camera Museum) and Etty Bay (in Innisfail). Spend the 11th (Thu) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 10th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Yorkeys Knob Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, and look for all kinds of wild species at The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Cairns travel planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 79°F in June, and nighttime lows around 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
