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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Michaelmas Cay and Shark Diving. Get some historical perspective at St Monica's Cathedral and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more) and Paradise Palms Country Club (in Clifton Beach). Spend the 15th (Tue) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. Spend the 17th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand, choose your vessel at Big Cat Green Island Reef Cruises - Day Tour, and take in the dramatic scenery at Crystal Cascades.

For where to stay, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Cairns day trip website .

Sydney to Cairns is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Sydney in May, with highs in Cairns at 32°C and lows at 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
