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: Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 3rd (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

For maps, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns online vacation planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
