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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, &more), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti) and Palm Cove (Spas, Annie's at the Beach, &more). Spend the 15th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 21st (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Munro Martin Parklands, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and let the kids burn off some steam at Muddy's Playground.

In September, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
