The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more). Spend the 18th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 21st (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.

December in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night.
