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.
Do your shopping at Village Gallery and Michael Seebeck Gallery. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay). Spend the 18th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 14th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, explore the galleries of Doongal Aboriginal Art Gallery Cairns, get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre, and get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

In April in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
