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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Get some cultural insight at Daintree Discovery Centre and Bones and Jones. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more). Spend the 18th (Thu) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, and learn about winemaking at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery.

For more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns online travel planner .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In July in Cairns, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 20°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
