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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Historic Village Herberton and Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, & more). Spend the 1st (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Michaelmas Cay and stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk.

To see photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Cairns road trip app .

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In October, daytime highs in Cairns are 34°C, while nighttime lows are 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
