Easter in Cairns 2013 – Great Barrier Reef
Are you planning Easter 2013 and want to spend it on Cairns’ Great Barrier Reef? Excellent decision! This is a great time of year to visit, with warm waters and lots to see. The date for Easter 2013 is Sunday 31 March. Although we don’t have a long range weather forecast for Cairns as yet (we will update this page closer to the time), at this time of year, you can expect warm days with comfortable nights.
This is autumn in Australia and the water temperature on Cairns’ Great Barrier Reef will be around 26-27 degrees Celsius. This means you should be comfortable in a lycra suit, although the boats will have a selection of lycra and wetsuits on board.
Cairns has a range of Easter trips to the Great Barrier Reef, catering to people of all ages and abilities. So, if you’re a diver, snorkeller or even non-swimmer, there is a trip for you! Not sure where to start? We’ve got some top tips and suggestions, or please contact us to discuss your specific needs. Easter Reef trips start from just $79 per person.
