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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Spas & Wellness, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 1st (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

For reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Cairns sightseeing website .

In May, daytime highs in Cairns are 32°C, while nighttime lows are 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
