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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness). Spend the 9th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find where to stay, reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Cairns travel planning tool .

January in Cairns sees daily highs of 37°C and lows of 28°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
