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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Historic Village Herberton and Daintree Discovery Centre. Visiting Opal Reef and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Yungaburra (Artistree Gallery, Curtain Fig National Park, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Safaris, & more). Spend the 1st (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 21st (Tue) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Birdworld Kuranda, admire the sheer force of Millaa Millaa Falls, learn more about the world around you at The Crystal Caves, and cross one thing off your bucket list with a skydiving experience.

For where to stay, more things to do, and more tourist information, read our Cairns trip itinerary site .

Expect a daytime high around 32°C in May, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
