— 4 nights

The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more) and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda). Spend the 29th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, don't miss a visit to Captain Cook Highway Rock Stacks, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, and kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach.

For ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns road trip planning website.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C.
