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.
Head to Funstuff by Lynda and Luminous Lightsfor plenty of shopping. Visit Historic Village Herberton and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery for their historical value. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Venture Deeper (in Mossman), Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay). And it doesn't end there: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip planner.

In July, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
