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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, &more), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). And it doesn't end there: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, trek along Wrights Lookout, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns trip planning website.

In August in Cairns, expect temperatures between 31°C during the day and 20°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
