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: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). Spend the 23rd (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

In April in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
