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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Get outdoors at Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay), Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas) and Thornton Beach (in Thornton Beach). Spend the 9th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

To find ratings, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns tour builder app .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
