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've now added The Bama Way Aboriginal Journeys to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to Birdworld Kuranda and Shark Diving. Get in touch with nature at Atherton Tablelands and Babinda Boulders. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Malanda (Malanda Falls & Mt. Hypipamee National Park), Mareeba (Mareeba Heritage Museum and Visitor Information Centre & Granite Gorge Nature Park) and Mulgrave Settlers Museum (in Gordonvale). Next up on the itinerary: take in the dramatic scenery at Josephine Falls, look for all kinds of wild species at Michaelmas Cay, see Off-Road Tours, and explore and take pictures at Red Arrow Walk.

For reviews, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Cairns day trip planning website.

Expect a daytime high around 36°C in March, and nighttime lows around 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
