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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more), Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 1st (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and get out on two wheels at Trail Bike Adventures.

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

In April, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
