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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Night Markets and Funstuff by Lynda. Get outdoors at Palm Cove Beach and Safaris. When in Cairns, make a side trip to see Sunday Market Port Douglas in Port Douglas, approximately 1h 25 min away. Spend the 16th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's lots more to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, stop by Cairns Central Shopping Centre, and browse the exhibits of Bones and Jones.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 33°C, while at night they dip to 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
