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.
Start off your visit on the 20th (Wed): see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see reviews, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary planning app .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
