Cairns

— 9 nights

The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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 The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Port Douglas (Opal Reef, St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, &more) and Mareeba (Jaques Coffee Plantation & Granite Gorge Nature Park). Spend the 8th (Tue) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's still lots to do: see Trail Bike Adventures, take in the exciting artwork at Artistree Gallery, explore the world behind art at Samurai Gallery Australia, and relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand.

Planning Cairns trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

In September in Cairns, expect temperatures between 33°C during the day and 22°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
