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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 12th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 14th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and get outside with Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see other places to visit, maps, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary site .

Queenstown, New Zealand to Cairns is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Queenstown to Cairns. In May, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 24°C. On the 16th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
