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.
Take a break from the city and head to Crystal Cascades and Shark Diving. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Millaa Millaa Falls and Babinda Boulders. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Mamu Tropical Skywalk (in Innisfail). The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.

To see photos, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns holiday builder website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 85°F, and evening lows to 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
