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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 20th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Cairns trip planner .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
