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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Safaris, Agincourt Reef, & more), Mossman (Kuku Yalanji Dreamtime, Mossman Golf Club, & more) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 11th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 10th (Fri) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Cove Beach, and stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 85°F in April, and nighttime lows around 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
