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.
You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Visit Historic Village Herberton and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Village Gallery, & more), Cow Bay (Walu Wugirriga Lookout, Cow Bay Beach, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Ngarru Gallery, & more). Spend the 7th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 19th (Tue) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's lots more to do: view the masterpieces at Underart Gallery, browse the exhibits of Michael Seebeck Gallery, enjoy the sand and surf at Thornton Beach, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
