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 Palm Cove Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Step out of Cairns with an excursion to Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas in Port Douglas--about 1h 15 min away. Spend the 12th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

To find where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner.

April in Cairns sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
