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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Etty Bay and Opal Reef. Get in touch with nature at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle and Atherton Tablelands. Venture out of the city with trips to Horses in Port (in Port Douglas), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Palm Cove) and Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba). Spend the 29th (Wed) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's still lots to do: delve into the lush surroundings at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, look for all kinds of wild species at Michaelmas Cay, get interesting insight from Shaolin Junk Cruises, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral.

For reviews, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns online trip itinerary maker .

In August, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Sun) so you can travel back home.
