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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 14th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in March, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
