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 out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach). There's lots more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and look for gifts at Annie's at the Beach.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 83°F, and evening lows to 66°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
