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 out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, & more). Spend the 6th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To find photos, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns road trip planning tool .

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. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
