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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Michaelmas Cay and Kayaking & Canoeing. Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Palm Cove Beach. Spend the 8th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see maps, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Cairns trip planner .

In October in Cairns, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 24°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
