Cairns

— 7 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.
Kids will enjoy Scuba & Snorkeling and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Escape the urban bustle at Esplanade Boardwalk and Daintree Discovery Centre. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove), Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, &more) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti). The adventure continues: take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, view the masterpieces at Bones and Jones, and brush up on your military savvy at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum.

In September, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 33°C, while at night they dip to 22°C.
