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.
Kids will enjoy Scuba & Snorkeling and Esplanade Boardwalk. Escape the urban bustle at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). There's much more to do: get curious at Daintree Discovery Centre, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major aiport is Cairns International Airport. In January, daytime highs in Cairns are 37°C, while nighttime lows are 28°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
