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.
Daintree Discovery Centre and Historic Village Herberton will appeal to museum buffs. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures). Spend the 20th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. It doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach and pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral.

For maps, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, read Cairns trip maker site .

In September, daytime highs in Cairns are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
