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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Yorkeys Knob Beach and Ellis Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Josephine Falls and Kayaking & Canoeing. The adventure continues: cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, take in the pleasant sights at Red Arrow Walk, brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, and identify plant and animal life at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk.

Before you visit Cairns, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

Sydney to Cairns is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Traveling from Sydney in April, things will get a bit warmer in Cairns: highs are around 34°C and lows about 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
