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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Get outdoors at Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Coffee Works & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas). Spend the 9th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To see traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Cairns online trip itinerary planner .

Expect a daytime high around 37°C in January, and nighttime lows around 28°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
