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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Coffee Works and Smithfield Shopping Centre. Get outdoors at Palm Cove Beach and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (With Sugar, Funstuff by Lynda, & more). Spend the 31st (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, stop by Australian Leather Company, browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 32°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
