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.
We've included these beaches for you: Etty Bay and Four Mile Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fishing Charters & Tours and Opal Reef. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, & more), Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton) and Port Douglas (Sunday Market Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). Spend the 10th (Tue) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. Spend the 1st (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Granite Gorge Nature Park, delve into the lush surroundings at Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, take in the dramatic natural features at Babinda Boulders, and stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
