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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, &more). Spend the 2nd (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 11th (Fri) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge Centre, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip maker app.

In January, plan for daily highs up to 37°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
