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.
Visit Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral for their historical value. Visit Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Floravilla Ice Cream Factory (in Daintree), Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay) and Palm Cove (Village Gallery, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more). Spend the 12th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 16th (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's lots more to do: take in the exciting artwork at Des Spencer Galleries, hunt for treasures at Sunday Market Port Douglas, admire the landmark architecture of Freshwater Station, and take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre.

To see photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, use the Cairns visit website .

In April, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
