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 itinerary includes some good beach time at Four Mile Beach and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Palm Cove Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Paronella Park (in Mena Creek), The Barn Ravenshoe (in Ravenshoe) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Fishing Charters & Tours). Spend the 24th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 11th (Tue) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, admire all the interesting features of Gallo DairyLand, enjoy the sand and surf at Wonga Beach, and admire the sheer force of Josephine Falls.

May in Cairns sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
