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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Historic Village Herberton and St Saviour's Anglican Church Kuranda. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kayaking & Canoeing and Opal Reef. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Yungaburra (Lake Barrine, Curtain Fig National Park, & more), Port Douglas (Port Douglas Microlights, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Spas & Wellness, & more). Spend the 31st (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 18th (Sun) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the dramatic scenery at Millaa Millaa Falls, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.

In October, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
