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.
Kids will enjoy Safaris and Four Mile Beach. Get outdoors at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas (in Port Douglas) and Spas & Wellness (in Palm Cove). Spend the 15th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. You'll have a few hours on the 20th (Sat) to wrap things up before traveling home.
