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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Annie's at the Beach & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, &more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). Spend the 7th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, admire the masterpieces at Samurai Gallery Australia, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

To find where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner.

In January, daytime highs in Cairns are °C, while nighttime lows are °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
