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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Next up on the itinerary: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, stop by Village Gallery, and stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk.

In October, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
