Cairns — 9 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.
Attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Safaris make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Flagstaff Hill Lookout, Horses in Port, &more), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti) and Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay). Spend the 23rd (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, make a trip to Green Island, and stroll through Palm Cove Beach.

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in December, and nighttime lows around 26°C.
