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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, Daintree National Park, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more) and Cow Bay (Daintree Discovery Centre, Cow Bay Beach, & more). Spend the 1st (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 1st (Sat) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, take in the dramatic scenery at Alexandra Bay Waterfall, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

To find more things to do, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, use the Cairns tour planner.

In May in Cairns, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 24°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
