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 find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Opal Reef, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more), Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). Spend the 1st (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. And it doesn't end there: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, and don't miss a visit to Green Island.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Cairns online itinerary maker .

In September in Cairns, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
