Cairns

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Wrights Lookout (in Kuranda) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas). The adventure continues: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip builder website.

In March, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 27°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
