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.
Family-friendly places like Daintree Discovery Centre and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures will thrill your kids. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). Spend the 28th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground.

To find more things to do, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Cairns road trip website .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In March in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 27°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
