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, Des Spencer Galleries, & more) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 2nd (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 14th (Tue) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. And it doesn't end there: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, stroll through Paronella Park, and soar above the sights with a balloon tour.

To find more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, use the Cairns trip planning app .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in May, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
