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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more). Spend the 13th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, don't miss a visit to Green Island, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find ratings, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Cairns trip planner.

In August in Cairns, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 20°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
