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.
Kick off your visit on the 28th (Sat): experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, then meet the residents at Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, and then have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool. Keep things going the next day: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Plan my day in Cairns using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Miyazaki, Japan to Cairns is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Miyazaki to Cairns due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Miyazaki in April; daily highs in Cairns reach 34°C and lows reach 26°C. On the 30th (Mon), you'll travel to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park.
