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 Cairns' surroundings by going to Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Village Gallery, & more) and Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more). Spend the 11th (Sun) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. The adventure continues: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

For traveler tips, ratings, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip itinerary builder website .

In July in Cairns, expect temperatures between 30°C during the day and 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
