Cairns

— 5 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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Muddy's Playground and Cairns Kart Hire Track. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Four Mile Beach), Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). Spend the 23rd (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge Centre, and relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour.

To find maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns day trip planning app.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major aiport is Cairns International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
