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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more), Mareeba Tropical Savannah and Wetland Reserve (in Mareeba) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 25th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, maps, and tourist information, read our Cairns day trip planner.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
