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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Esplanade Lagoon Pool as well as Kuranda Scenic Railway. Visiting Scuba & Snorkeling and Palm Cove Beach will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). There's lots more to do: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.

To see reviews, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns travel planner.

In April in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 26°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
