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.
Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more) and Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation). Spend the 8th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 6th (Thu) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take a memorable tour with Tours, don't miss a visit to Green Island, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. September in Cairns sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
