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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Historic Village Herberton and Daintree Discovery Centre. Get outdoors at Safaris and Four Mile Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). Spend the 16th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, stop by OK Gift Shop, and buy something for everyone on your list at Smithfield Shopping Centre.

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns online trip itinerary builder .

Expect a daytime high around 34°C in October, and nighttime lows around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
