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.
Relax by the water at Palm Cove Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum and St Monica's Cathedral. Step out of Cairns with an excursion to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures in Wangetti--about 44 minutes away. Spend the 3rd (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 5th (Fri) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, view the masterpieces at Underart Gallery, explore the world behind art at Samurai Gallery Australia, and kick back and relax at Trinity Beach.

Adelaide to Cairns is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. You'll lose 0.5 hours traveling from Adelaide to Cairns due to the time zone difference. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Adelaide in October: high temperatures in Cairns hover around 34°C and lows are around 24°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
