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.
Appreciate the collections at Historic Village Herberton and Daintree Discovery Centre. Visit St Monica's Cathedral and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Safaris, Agincourt Reef, & more), Thornton Beach (in Thornton Beach) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 5th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 19th (Thu) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, explore the striking landscape of Daintree National Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, and stroll through Palm Cove Beach.

September in Cairns sees daily highs of 33°C and lows of 22°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
