Cairns (Yorkeys Knob), Australia
The Tropical North Queensland city of Cairns is one of Australia's hottest vacation hubs. The laidback city enjoys summer temperatures year-round, alleviated by balmy breezes blowing in off Trinity Bay. Cairns’ wide, tree-lined esplanades and busy waterfront are perfect for promenading, and there’s plenty to do around town.
Great Barrier Reef
Cairns is the gateway to a brace of world-renowned natural wonders including the World-Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and ancient Daintree Rainforest. Enjoy a dive, snorkel or scenic cruise out to the reef, or take a day trip into or scenic flight over the rainforest.
A string of superb beaches stretch north of the city, behind which lies the lush Atherton Tablelands, best accessed via the historic steam railway or cable car that glides above the canopy.
En route to Kuranda, a charming hippie town, stop off for a guided rainforest tour and views of mighty Barron Falls.
