Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris & Agincourt Reef), Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness). Spend the 3rd (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, learn about winemaking at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery, stroll through Wonga Beach, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

For where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Cairns driving holiday planner.

London, UK to Cairns is an approximately 23.5-hour flight. You'll lose 10 hours traveling from London to Cairns due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from London in April, with highs in Cairns at 34°C and lows at 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 13th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Gold Coast.
