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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 30th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 5th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones.

For where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Cairns trip website .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
