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 Cow Bay (Cow Bay Beach, Daintree Discovery Centre, & more), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Alexandra Bay Waterfall (in Diwan). Spend the 8th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 24th (Mon) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's lots more to do: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, make a trip to Green Island, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find ratings, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, use the Cairns day trip planner.

If you are flying in from Germany, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In September in Cairns, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 22°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
