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.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Tue): relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool. On the 18th (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: appreciate the history behind Cairns Cenotaph and then trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find reviews, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns route planner.

Melbourne to Cairns is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Traveling from Melbourne in December, expect Cairns to be somewhat warmer, temps between 36°C and 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 18th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
