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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Josephine Falls and Atherton Tablelands. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Kuranda (Birdworld Kuranda & Wrights Lookout), Herberton (Historic Village Herberton & Spy & Camera Museum) and Yungaburra (Platypus Viewing Platform, The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour, & more). Spend the 6th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 21st (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Michaelmas Cay, don't miss a visit to St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand, and pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In April, daytime highs in Cairns are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
