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.
Escape the urban bustle at Etty Bay and Shark Diving. You'll get in some beach time at Wonga Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda), Yungaburra (Artistree Gallery & Curtain Fig National Park) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, explore the gorgeous colors at Opal Reef, relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Cairns trip simple and quick.

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 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
