Cairns

— 30 nights

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti) and Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove). Spend the 1st (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 6th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy some diversion at Muddy's Playground, admire the sheer force of Josephine Falls, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 31°C, and evening lows to 20°C.
