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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Mulgrave Settlers Museum (in Gordonvale), Port Douglas (Ngarru Gallery, Safaris, &more) and Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, &more). And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, make a trip to Green Island, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, and skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour.

To find where to stay, photos, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Cairns tour itinerary maker site.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
