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.
Relax by the water at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures and Scuba & Snorkeling. There's more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach.

To find maps, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary planner .

In September, daytime highs in Cairns are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
