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.
Get in touch with nature at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Attractions like Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove). Spend the 26th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, cast your line with a fishing tour, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

Plan trip to Cairns with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

If you are flying in from Japan, 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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
