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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris, Port Douglas Microlights, & more), Walshs Pyramid (in Gordonvale) and Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more). Spend the 9th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 30th (Fri) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. Next up on the itinerary: head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, do some two-wheel cruising with Trail Bike Adventures, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in March, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
