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. Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas). Spend the 19th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In April, daytime highs in Cairns are 85°F, while nighttime lows are 72°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
