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.
Daintree Discovery Centre and Janbal Gallery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Coffee Works, & more), Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Daintree Tea (in Daintree). Spend the 13th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Palm Cove Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Cow Bay Beach, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, and get a new perspective on things with Shaolin Junk Cruises.

To see reviews, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 82°F in May, and nighttime lows around 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
