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.
Visiting Yorkeys Knob Beach and Babinda Boulders will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like The Bat Hospital Visitor Centre and Lake Barrine. Venture out of the city with trips to Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Mamu Tropical Skywalk (in Innisfail) and Millaa Millaa Falls (in Millaa Millaa). Spend the 11th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay and brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum.

To see more things to do, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip planning tool .

In September, daytime highs in Cairns are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
