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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Michaelmas Cay and Atherton Tablelands. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove), Safaris (in Port Douglas) and Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton). Spend the 17th (Mon) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

In September, daytime highs in Cairns are 33°C, while nighttime lows are 22°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Fri) so you can travel back home.
