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 find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 5th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns day trip planning tool .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
