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.
Let the collections at Historic Village Herberton and Daintree Entomological museum capture your imagination. Daintree Discovery Centre and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Port Douglas Microlights, Ngarru Gallery, & more), Mossman (Daintree Mangroves Wildlife Sanctuary, Mossman Golf Club, & more) and Miallo Japanese Bombing Site (in Miallo). Spend the 8th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 28th (Mon) exploring nature at Mt. Hypipamee National Park. There's much more to do: relax in the rural setting at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, kick back and relax at Thornton Beach, stroll through Palm Cove Beach, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

To find traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns road trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, 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 6th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
