Trinity Beach; and beyond?

My wife and i are contemplating a three/four week stay in Trinity Beach Cairns in December 2014. We are in our early 60's. Though we intend to fly down to visit our son in Sydney for a few days we would like advice as to attractions, things to do, places to visit in the Cairns area,once the beach has worn off, though perhaps it wont? We made the mistake last visit of not realising a short distance on an Oz map can be hundreds of miles, so would welcome suggestions that are easy to get to. Our son says internal flights can be cheap so we are open to that.

You can sign up for email notices of airline specials on the airline websites. Jetstar (http://www.jetstar.com.au), TigerAir (http://www.tigerair.com/au/en/) and Qantas (http://www.qantas.com.au) fly Sydney to Cairns. For ideas of sights to see in and around Cairns, entertainment and events, clubs to visit, and tours, see: trinitytropicaloasis.com/trinity_beach_house… - never fear, there is plenty to do in Cairns!

Why Trinity Beach or Cairns in particular?

The beach will wear off very quickly in December. Not only is it the start of the wet season which means high humidity, high temperatures and rain with the possibility of tropical cyclones (although that's unusual so early in the wet it's not unheard of), but it's also stinger season so you can only swim in pools, on netted beaches or wearing a stinger suit.

If you just want to laze about on a beach soaking up the sun then the north coast of NSW has better weather in December.
