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 Opal Reef and Michaelmas Cay. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Yungaburra (Artistree Gallery & Curtain Fig National Park), The Crystal Caves (in Atherton) and Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel & Fishing Charters & Tours). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Historic Village Herberton, experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, and identify plant and animal life at Birdworld Kuranda.

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, read Cairns travel website .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
