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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Historic Village Herberton and Michaelmas Cay. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Opal Reef, Horses in Port, & more), Yungaburra (Artistree Gallery, Platypus Viewing Platform, & more) and Innisfail (Mamu Tropical Skywalk & Etty Bay). Spend the 11th (Thu) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. Spend the 30th (Tue) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, and experience rural life at Gallo DairyLand.

To find other places to visit, ratings, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Cairns road trip planning tool .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In September, daytime highs in Cairns are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 7th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
