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, & more) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 14th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

To find maps, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip itinerary maker website .

In April in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) so you can travel back home.
