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.
Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. Step off the beaten path and head to Josephine Falls and Red Arrow Walk. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 14th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, stroll through Yorkeys Knob Beach, take in the dramatic scenery at Behana Gorge Waterfall, and tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises.

For maps, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns day trip site .

Zurich, Switzerland to Cairns is an approximately 23-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, bus, and flight; or do a combination of train and flight. The time zone difference moving from Central European Time (CET) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Queensland) (AEST) is 9 hours. In April, Cairns is much hotter than Zurich - with highs of 34°C and lows of 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
