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.
Get in touch with nature at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Discover out-of-the-way places like Michaelmas Cay and St Monica's Cathedral. When in Cairns, make a side trip to see Palm Cove Beach in Palm Cove, approximately 32 minutes away. Spend the 7th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
