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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Explore hidden gems such as Michaelmas Cay and Atherton Tablelands. Venture out of the city with trips to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Spend the 13th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For where to stay, maps, and tourist information, go to the Cairns journey planning tool .

In October, plan for daily highs up to 34°C, and evening lows to 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
