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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Daintree Discovery Centre and Historic Village Herberton. We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, &more) and Mossman (Venture Deeper & Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery). Spend the 13th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 23rd (Sat) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. And it doesn't end there: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, pause for some serene contemplation at St Monica's Cathedral, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiport is Cairns International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 33°C in September, and nighttime lows around 22°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
