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.
Attractions like Four Mile Beach and Muddy's Playground make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Kuranda (Wrights Lookout, Honey House, &more), Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, Palm Cove Beach, &more) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more). Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and don't miss a visit to Green Island.

In September in Cairns, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 22°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 9th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
