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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Do your shopping at Coffee Works and Rusty's Market. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Port Douglas (With Sugar, Safaris, & more) and Kuranda (Doongul Aboriginal Art Gallery & Australian Butterfly Sanctuary). Spend the 11th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 17th (Wed) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, buy something for everyone on your list at Smithfield Shopping Centre, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.

If you are flying in from Finland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
