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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, With Sugar, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more). Spend the 18th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, get out on two wheels at Trail Bike Adventures, and get outside with Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip tool .

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
