Cairns

— 11 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more), Kuranda (Terra Nova Gallery, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, &more) and Palm Cove (Spas & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 20th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 24th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge Centre, get interesting insight from Skypark by AJ Hackett Cairns, and let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground.

For where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip website.

February in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C at night.
