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.
Kids will enjoy Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling, Safaris, & more) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). Spend the 8th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, and have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

For more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, use the Cairns day trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 34°C in April, and nighttime lows around 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
