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: Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas). There's much more to do: get interesting insight from Tours, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find other places to visit, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, read Cairns trip itinerary builder tool .

Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 6th (Sun) to allow time for travel back home.
