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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). There's still lots to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground.

Barcelona, Spain to Cairns is an approximately 25-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Barcelona to Cairns due to the time zone difference. Expect slightly colder evenings in Cairns when traveling from Barcelona in August, with lows around 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
