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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness (in Cape Tribulation), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas, & more). Spend the 13th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 18th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, take a leisurely stroll along The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk, and let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground.

Plan trip to Cairns with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

In May in Cairns, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Thu) so you can travel back home.
