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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more), Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 14th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, stroll through Trinity Beach, and don't miss a visit to Green Island.

To see traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns online holiday maker .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In April, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
