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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Opal Reef and Historic Village Herberton. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Thornton Beach (in Thornton Beach), Kuranda (Peter Jarver Gallery, Birdworld Kuranda, & more) and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 30th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 13th (Mon) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's much more to do: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

For maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns planner .

April in Cairns sees daily highs of 34°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
