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.
You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Trinity Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Sunday Market Port Douglas & Coffee Works) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Spend the 27th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, take in the exciting artwork at Bones and Jones, stop by Luminous Lights, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

Expect a daytime high around 33°C in September, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
