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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at St Monica's Cathedral and Doongal Aboriginal Art Gallery Cairns. Change things up with a short trip to Safaris in Port Douglas (about 1h 25 min away). Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, and have unforgettable encounters with a shark diving experience.

For reviews, maps, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip itinerary maker site .

May in Cairns sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
