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: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Scuba & Snorkeling). There's more to do: head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find more things to do, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, read Cairns travel route planner .

If you are flying in from New Zealand, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
