Cairns

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Palm Cove Beach and Safaris. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Opal Reef, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 27th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, engage your brain at Daintree Discovery Centre, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.

For traveler tips, photos, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planning app .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
