Weather in Cairns in April

by linlorli

We are arriving in Cairns March 31 & staying for 5 days. What is the weather like that time of year & is it a good time for diving & snorkleing? We are actually staying in Port Douglas.

Hi as a Cairns local we are experiencing the biggest wet season for many years.

March is still the cyclone season so the weather is very unpredictable.

Port Douglas is only an hours drive north up the coast.

Most boats go out to the reef every day of the year but once again they may need to cancel if the visibility or the weather is bad.

Have a great time.

Its warm and humid. Fantastic place to stay at that time of year in Port Douglas. I had a great time snorkelling and diving on the reef around March a few years back. Shop around for the Barrier Reef boat trip. The big boats are not necesarily the best option. I went with a small operator and had a great time :)

Travel Tips for Cairns

Learn something about Corals.

by Sharrie

Learn something about CORALS REEF: Bricks & Mortars of the underwater seaworld.

Coral Reefs are composed of mostly 'dead' limestone & only a small part of the surface is alive with colorful corals. Named after tiny animals called Polyps which are the most obvious reef builders. Polyps divide & create new living structures known as coral colonies. This in turn is the framework around which all sorts of reef animals lives.

Coral colonies grow upwards to the light. They may reach the surface & die or be eaten by starfish or gradually eroded by borers. If the rate of accumulation of the dead skeletons exceeds the rate of erosion, a reef is slowly formed. Acropora, one of the fastest growing staghorn corals grow as much as 200-300 mm per year. However, sediments accumulate on reefs only at an annual rate of 1mm.

ALGAE is another important mortar in reef-building. An encrusting coralline algae is of special importance in cementing together the skeletons of corals & other reef creatures which in turn forms a hard pavement on reef crests.

There are a couple of ways you can do this trip. Take a tour OR self drive. I suggest that if you feel good about driving, that's the way to go.You can rent a car from one of the many outlets.
Leave Cairns early in the morning, this way you are ahead of the tour buses:)
I would leave around 6.30am, head north on the Cook Highway to Port Douglas, stop here for a coffee and breakfast, have a look around this lovely village and then out to Mossman Gorge.
You can spend at least 1 or 2 hours here, walking round under the Rainforest Canopy. Beautiful! Once you have left Mossman, you head towards the village of Daintree, you can call into Daintree and have a look around, then off to the river crossing.You can buy a return ticket for the car barge. Once over the river you head to Cape Tribulation. You can stop along the way, at your leisure.

You can then return that day to Cairns OR stay overnight at Cape Tribulation at a Backpackers or one of the resorts or B & B's

ALL the roads are sealed up to Cape Tribulation. Beyond Cape Tribulation you need a 4x4 and you will need more than a day, staying overnight at Cooktown. Then heading back to Cairns on the sealed road. THIS PART OF THE TRIP IS A DRY WEATHER TRIP ONLY!!!!



buy a plate and fill it with whatever takes your fancy ! prices start from $5 for a small plate to $11 for a large one

there are several stalls in the food hall offering this, prices are really cheap and the food is great, freshly cooked with lots of choice

on the opposite side are Pizza and Italian food stalls serving good sized portions also at great prices, but the oriental food was our favourite

View the mud flats

by sue&gene

We were only in Cairns for part of a day before heading north to Port Douglas, but enjoyed walking along the beach and viewing the mud flats. They were alive with activity!! Many birds enjoy this area and if you look closely you will be able to see some of the smaller "critters" that inhabit the mud. I was fascinated with the small crab-like creatures and mud skippers.

Exercise along the Esplanade

by tropicrd

The Cairns Esplanade "the Nard" runs along the forefront of Cairns beach called the mudflats,it is not really a swimming beach and lots of tourists get stuck in the mud and have to be pulled out. Along the boardwalk you can jog or walk with exercise stations strategically placed so you can do pushups etc.A cycle lane runs side by side with the walking track with klm signs marking the distance.These pathways have lots of trees to shade you from the harsh tropical sun .Keep going north and you will find tennis courts,volley ball courts and a skateboard rink.For the little children we have Muddies playground with water features ,jungle flying fox and other equipment.
