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.
Step out of Cairns to go to Palm Cove and see Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, which is approximately 44 minutes away. Spend the 4th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 6th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

For where to stay, maps, photos, and other tourist information, use the Cairns travel site .

Sydney to Cairns is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from Sydney in March; daily highs in Cairns reach 36°C and lows reach 27°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
