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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Scuba & Snorkeling & Safaris) and Spas & Wellness (in Palm Cove). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk and head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
