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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Funstuff by Lynda and Cairns Kart Hire Track. Visit Trinity Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). And it doesn't end there: take a memorable tour with Tours, don't miss a visit to Green Island, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see maps, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip builder .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In February in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
