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.
Daintree Discovery Centre and St Monica's Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Rex Lookout (in Wangetti), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Ngarru Gallery, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 23rd (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 4th (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, 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 6th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
