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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Historic Village Herberton and Floravilla Ice Cream Factory & Art Gallery. Step off the beaten path and head to The Crystal Caves and St Mary’s by The Sea chapel. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba), Port Douglas (Opal Reef, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness). Spend the 13th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, view the masterpieces at Rainforest Gems Gallery & Studio, get engrossed in the history at Spy & Camera Museum, and relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand.

For ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns road trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Cyprus, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In April in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
