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.
Visiting Four Mile Beach and Safaris will get you outdoors. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Step out of Cairns with an excursion to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures in Palm Cove--about 44 minutes away. Spend the 20th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns road trip app .

In September in Cairns, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
