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.
Bring the kids along to Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas). Next up on the itinerary: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and admire the striking features of Freshwater Station.

To see other places to visit, maps, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 34°C in October, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
