Cairns

— 14 nights

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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Etty Bay for some beach relaxation. Step off the beaten path and head to Atherton Tablelands and The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti), Port Douglas (Safaris & Opal Reef) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at The Peterson Creek Walking Track, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay.

For photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary planning app.

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
