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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Wonga Beach. Visiting Safaris and Esplanade Boardwalk will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Kuranda (Our Animals Our Earth, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, & more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more) and Port Douglas (Horseback Riding Tours, Opal Reef, & more). Spend the 15th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 7th (Fri) exploring nature at Millstream Falls National Park. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, tour the water at your own pace with Shaolin Junk Cruises, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

If you are flying in from Germany, 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 your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
