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.
Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Safaris. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Four Mile Beach (in Port Douglas), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout). The adventure continues: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, take a leisurely stroll along The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk, and make a trip to Freshwater Station.

To find reviews, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns online day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Mexico, the closest major aiport is Cairns International Airport. December in Cairns sees daily highs of °C and lows of °C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
