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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and Babinda Boulders. Museum-lovers will appreciate The Crystal Caves and Spy & Camera Museum. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Rainforest Gems Gallery & Studio (in Tolga) and Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more). Spend the 20th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: identify plant and animal life at Birdworld Kuranda, experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand, view the masterpieces at Artistree Gallery, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.

To find where to stay, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns vacation planning website .

In April, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
