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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more). And it doesn't end there: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, ratings, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip itinerary tool .

Expect a daytime high around 31°C in August, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
