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.
Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Shop till you drop at Coffee Works and Rusty's Market. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (With Sugar, Four Mile Beach, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Doongul Aboriginal Art Gallery (in Kuranda). Spend the 10th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, browse the different shops at Stockland Cairns Shopping Centre, stop by Cairns Central Shopping Centre, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary tool .

In May in Cairns, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
