Kyrenia

Famous for its natural port and Byzantine castle, Kyrenia is not only a lovely old Venetian town, but also the most visited tourist destination in Northern Cyprus.
Popular historic sites such as Bellapais Monastery and St Andrew's Church are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mavi kosk and Church of Antiphonitis. There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Saint Hilarion Castle, get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, try your luck at Lord’s Palace Hotel Casino, and kick back and relax at Alagadi Turtle Beach.

To see photos, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Kyrenia day trip planner.

Brisbane, Australia to Kyrenia is an approximately 30-hour combination of flight and car. Traveling from Brisbane to Kyrenia, you'll gain 8 hours due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Brisbane, expect somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Kyrenia, ranging from highs of 33°C to lows of 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Mon) to allow time to drive to Famagusta.

City of 365 Churches

Just east of the capital sits Famagusta, an ancient port city with archaeological attractions, as well as an abandoned quarter that is popular among tourists as a symbol of the conflict between Turks and Greeks.
Sea Gate and Famagusta City Walls are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Salamis Ancient City and Othello Castle. Next up on the itinerary: mingle with the ghosts of the past at Ghost Town Varosha, delve into the distant past at Enkomi (Alasia), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Lala Mustafa Pasha Mosque, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Barnabas Monastery and Icon Museum.
