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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Atherton Tablelands and Historic Village Herberton. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more), Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). Spend the 12th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Cairns tour itinerary maker.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Cairns International Airport. February in Cairns sees daily highs of 88°F and lows of 75°F at night. On the 20th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
