The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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 Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, &more), Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman) and Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout). Spend the 22nd (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 26th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, look for gifts at Australian Leather Company, and admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens.

For other places to visit, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns tour itinerary builder tool.

Expect a daytime high around 32°C in May, and nighttime lows around 24°C.
