Cairns

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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman), Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Kayaking & Canoeing). Spend the 16th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 22nd (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, identify plant and animal life at Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, and have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

To see other places to visit, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns day trip site .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in October, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
