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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Opal Reef and Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle. Get outdoors at Curtain Fig National Park and Safaris. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Four Mile Beach (in Port Douglas) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 7th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands, head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Cairns travel route app .

In October in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
