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.
Step out of the city life by going to Opal Reef and Jaques Coffee Plantation. Step off the beaten path and head to Atherton Tablelands and Michaelmas Cay. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Spas & Wellness (in Palm Cove) and Curtain Fig National Park (in Yungaburra). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Josephine Falls.

For reviews, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary maker site .

Expect a daytime high around 32°C in May, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
