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.
Visiting Four Mile Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sunday Market Port Douglas and St Mary’s by The Sea chapel. Go for a jaunt from Cairns to Palm Cove to see Hartley's Crocodile Adventures about 44 minutes away.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip planner .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, 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 up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
