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.
Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Esplanade Boardwalk. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, stop by Annie's at the Beach, and take in the waterfront at The Jack Barnes Bicentennial Mangrove Boardwalk.

Start your trip to Cairns by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

September in Cairns sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
