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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, &more), Palm Cove (Spas & Palm Cove Beach) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). Spend the 26th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for gifts at Australian Leather Company, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

For photos, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns journey planner.

June in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 22°C at night.
