Cairns — 6 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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Kuranda Scenic Railway, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Attractions like Palm Cove Beach and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary make great kid-friendly stops. Go for a jaunt from Cairns to Kuranda to see Barron Falls about 40 minutes away. There's more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground.

To see where to stay, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Cairns road trip planning website.

December in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night.
