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 Etty Bay and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness. Popular historic sites such as Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral are in your itinerary. Venture out of the city with trips to Kuranda (Birdworld Kuranda, Butterfly Shop Kuranda, & more), Palm Cove (Kayaking & Canoeing, Spas & Wellness, & more) and Mareeba (Davies Creek National Park, Jaques Coffee Plantation, & more). Spend the 15th (Mon) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 29th (Thu) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Opal Reef, enjoy the sand and surf at Wonga Beach, stroll through Yorkeys Knob Beach, and head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay.

In October in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 24°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
