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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 19th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, do some two-wheel cruising with Trail Bike Adventures, get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and don't miss a visit to Green Island.

To see reviews, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Cairns driving holiday website .

April in Cairns sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 26°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
