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.
Skedaddle has been added to your itinerary. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Sunday Market Port Douglas and Michaelmas Cay. Get in touch with nature at Curtain Fig National Park and Birdworld Kuranda. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach & Safaris), Babinda Boulders (in Babinda) and Kayaking & Canoeing (in Palm Cove). Spend the 4th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, stop by Australian Leather Company, hunt for treasures at Rusty's Market, and browse the exhibits of Cairns Art Gallery.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
