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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris). Spend the 13th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

Plan my Cairns trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In May in Cairns, expect temperatures between 82°F during the day and 69°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
