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.
Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Let the collections at Daintree Discovery Centre and Daintree Entomological museum capture your imagination. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more), Kuranda (Terra Nova Gallery & Australian Butterfly Sanctuary) and Cow Bay Beach (in Cow Bay). Spend the 15th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 3rd (Sat) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. The adventure continues: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, kick back and relax at Palm Cove Beach, get interesting insight from Shaolin Junk Cruises, and do a tasting at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery.

In October, daytime highs in Cairns are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
