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.
Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Next up on the itinerary: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, head outdoors with Esplanade Lagoon Pool, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

To see other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns holiday planning app .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
