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.
Visit Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach for some beach relaxation. Do your shopping at Coffee Works and Rusty's Market. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Port Douglas (Funstuff by Lynda, Des Spencer Galleries, & more) and Yungaburra (Yungaburra Markets & Artistree Gallery). Spend the 15th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 10th (Sun) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. Next up on the itinerary: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, stop by Luminous Lights, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and browse the different shops at Stockland Cairns Shopping Centre.

To see more things to do, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 34°C in October, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 28th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
