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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda). The adventure continues: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, make a trip to Green Island, tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

To plan Cairns vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In May, daytime highs in Cairns are 82°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
