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.
Step out of the city life by going to Behana Gorge Waterfall and Cathedral Fig Tree. Explore hidden gems such as Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park and Shark Diving. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre (in Atherton), Yungaburra (The Afghanistan Avenue of Honour & Curtain Fig National Park) and Babinda Boulders (in Babinda). The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, take in the dramatic scenery at Crystal Cascades, and see the vivid underwater world at Opal Reef.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip planner.

In May, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
