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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas and Four Mile Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Horseback Riding Tours, & more). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, get interesting insight from Tours, cool off at Cairns Wake park, and observe the fascinating underwater world at Cairns Aquarium.

In January, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 37°C, while at night they dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
