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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Opal Reef and Atherton Tablelands. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Babinda Boulders (in Babinda) and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 22nd (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 2nd (Thu) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, look for all kinds of wild species at Birdworld Kuranda, explore the striking landscape of Curtain Fig National Park, and learn more about the world around you at The Crystal Caves.

To see reviews, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip itinerary tool .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
