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 outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Four Mile Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Birdworld Kuranda and Atherton Tablelands. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Sunday Market Port Douglas & Safaris), Babinda Boulders (in Babinda) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). There's still lots to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Millaa Millaa Falls, step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, and experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand.

To see ratings, more things to do, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip planning site.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major aiport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
