The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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.
Reef Experience has been added to your itinerary. Kids will enjoy Safaris and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Spas), Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout) and Port Douglas (Horseback Riding Tours, Four Mile Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, observe the fascinating underwater world at Cairns Aquarium, and admire the landmark architecture of Freshwater Station.

Brisbane to Cairns is an approximately 4-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. When traveling from Brisbane in December, plan for a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Cairns: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 26°C at night. You will have some time to spend on the 2nd (Sat) before leaving for home.
