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.
Get outdoors at Daintree Discovery Centre and Scuba & Snorkeling. Do some cultural sightseeing at Village Gallery and Des Spencer Galleries. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Sunday Market Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Floravilla Ice Cream Factory (in Daintree). There's lots more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, take in the exciting artwork at Underart Gallery, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.

To see maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 82°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
