transit in Urumqi for 19.5 hours

I'm an Australian passport holder and may possibly be flying to Tajikistan later this year. I will be flying from Australia and transit via Guangzhou, then Urumqi, before landing in Tajikistan. I will be in transit at Guangzhou airport for about 2.5 hours (I have no plans to exit the airport there), then flying to Urumqi airport. There will be about 19.5 hours before my flight to Tajikistan, so I'm planning to exit the airport and see the city. I understand most other Chinese airports have a visa-free exemption for stays under 24 hours, but there is almost no information about Urumqi airport when it comes to this issue. Since my total stay is under 24 hours, would I still need a transit visa for this?

As I know, this airport is only free for 2 hours. So you need to apply for a visa even you will not get out of the airport.
