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.
Shop till you drop at Night Markets and Sunday Market Port Douglas. Visit Palm Cove Beach and Four Mile Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Safaris (in Port Douglas), Daintree Discovery Centre (in Cow Bay) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 15th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones.

If you are flying in from South Africa, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In September, daytime highs in Cairns are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
