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.
Get outdoors at Curtain Fig National Park and Michaelmas Cay. Discover out-of-the-way places like Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness and Birdworld Kuranda. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 22nd (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, and have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Cairns fast, fun, and easy.

In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
