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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Daintree Discovery Centre and Underart Gallery. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). And it doesn't end there: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.

To see ratings, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 32°C in May, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
