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.
Bring the kids along to Scuba & Snorkeling and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach). Spend the 14th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. It doesn't end there: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

For maps, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, read our Cairns trip itinerary planning app .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
