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.
Escape the urban bustle at Palm Cove Beach and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Coffee Works, & more). Spend the 16th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, and choose your vessel at Shaolin Junk Cruises.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns driving holiday planner .

In April, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
