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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 13th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 18th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns attractions planner .

In April, daytime highs in Cairns are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
