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 get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Visit Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more), Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing & Palm Cove Beach) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree National Park & Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness). Spend the 27th (Sat) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, stroll through Wonga Beach, identify plant and animal life at Mossman Gorge, and browse the exhibits of Daintree Discovery Centre.

Start your trip to Cairns by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
