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 Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Port Douglas (Safaris & Four Mile Beach). There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and stop by Annie's at the Beach.

To find where to stay, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Cairns road trip planner .

In September, plan for daily highs up to 33°C, and evening lows to 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
