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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). Spend the 30th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In May in Cairns, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
