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 out of the city life by going to Birdworld Kuranda and Opal Reef. Get some cultural insight at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and Mulgrave Settlers Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to The Crystal Caves (in Atherton), Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park (in Lake Eacham) and Mareeba (Mareeba Heritage Museum and Visitor Information Centre & Granite Gorge Nature Park). Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, admire the sheer force of Crystal Cascades, cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To find where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns travel itinerary planner.

In March in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 27°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
