The gateway to Queensland's tropical north, Cairns is a laid-back city best enjoyed outdoors.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, The Deep Retreat & Yoga Studio, & more). Spend the 28th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: get out on two wheels at Trail Bike Adventures, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground.

To see where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns tour planner.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. July in Cairns sees daily highs of 30°C and lows of 20°C at night.
