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.
Take a break from the city and head to Safaris and Esplanade Boardwalk. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, & more), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park). Spend the 20th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To find photos, ratings, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip builder site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 85°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
