Cairns

— 11 nights

The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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.
Bring the kids along to Scuba & Snorkeling and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, &more), Peter Jarver Gallery (in Kuranda) and Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout). Spend the 4th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 12th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's lots more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge Centre, and enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Cove Beach.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner.

In April, daytime highs in Cairns are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C.
