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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more) and Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout). Spend the 3rd (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, look for all kinds of wild species at Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, and stop by Bones and Jones.

May in Cairns sees daily highs of 32°C and lows of 24°C at night.
