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.
Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Four Mile Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Horses in Port, & more). The adventure continues: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and explore the world behind art at Samurai Gallery Australia.

If you are flying in from Afghanistan, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in March, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
