Cairns

— 45 nights

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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Wangetti (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Rex Lookout), Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Spas) and Port Douglas (Horseback Riding Tours, Safaris, &more). Spend the 5th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. On the 20th (Thu), spend a day of historical exploration at Historic Village Herberton. There's lots more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, walk around Paronella Park, scramble along the landscape with a canyoning and rapelling tour, and do a tasting at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery.

For photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Cairns attractions planner.

In May, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 24°C.
