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.
Visiting Four Mile Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling will get you outdoors. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Paronella Park (in Mena Creek), Ravenshoe (The Barn Ravenshoe & Millstream Falls National Park) and Fishing Charters & Tours (in Port Douglas). There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, kick back and relax at Etty Bay, take in the dramatic scenery at Millaa Millaa Falls, and get great views at Mamu Tropical Skywalk.

May in Cairns sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Mon) so you can travel back home.
