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.
You'll get in some beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Nudey Beach. Get some cultural insight at Village Gallery and Samurai Gallery Australia. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Spas (in Palm Cove) and Ross and Locke Park (in Little Mulgrave). There's still lots to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Cairns road trip website.

Brisbane to Cairns is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Brisbane in February since evenings lows in Cairns dip to 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
