Cairns

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Safaris, Port Douglas Golf Tours, &more), Mulgrave Settlers Museum (in Gordonvale) and Daintree (Daintree Tea, Elizas Gallery, &more). Spend the 8th (Wed) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

Plan my trip to Cairns with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Billund, Denmark to Cairns is an approximately 27-hour flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Billund to Cairns due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Billund in March, with highs in Cairns at 36°C and lows at 27°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) so you can travel to Melbourne.

Australia's Garden City

The state of Victoria crown jewel, Melbourne boasts shaded streets, leafy residential neighborhoods, vibrant street life, and a picturesque city center.
Venture out of the city with trips to Portarlington Mill (in Portarlington), Geelong Gaol (in Geelong) and Lara Heritage and Historical Museum (in Lara). There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Royal Botanic Gardens, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Melbourne Zoo, admire the masterpieces at National Gallery of Victoria, and see the interesting displays at Melbourne Museum.
