Cairns

The gateway to Queensland's tropical north, Cairns is a laid-back city best enjoyed outdoors.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Four Mile Beach) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 11th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, tour in style with a train tour, cool off at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery.

To find where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and other tourist information, read our Cairns itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. April in Cairns sees daily highs of 85°F and lows of 71°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
