Where to Go in Australia in May

May is the last month of Autumn, so it’s just right that we make the most out of it. The weather is not too hot and not too cold, and the humidity is low enough – which is a sign that you should, indeed, enjoy the outdoors.

Australia is one of the most visited countries in the world, and for good reason. Their beaches are great surfing spots for both professional surfers and beginners, and their zoos are full of animals that would make both kids and adults aware of the beautiful nature surrounding us. May is the perfect time to visit, because after this month, the weather will slowly transition to winter. We’ve listed the places you can go to during the month of May, and if ever you’ve decided that you want to go, you can call us for an affordable car hire in Adelaide  or anywhere else in Australia.

Cairns began as a marshy swamp, without anyone taking interest in visiting or even looking at it. Today though, Cairns is the total opposite, as it attracts thousands of tourists all year, every year. It is especially popular during the months of April and May, just before winter starts to come in. There are a lot of places that you can visit in Cairns: swim in Cairns Esplanade Boardwalk and Lagoon, hang out at the Flecker Botanic Gardens, marvel at the beautiful sight of Crystal Cascades’ waterfall, see the world’s largest crocodile at the Marineland Crocodile Park, and many more!
