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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Historic Village Herberton and Spas & Wellness. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach), Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, Opal Reef, & more) and Rex Lookout (in Wangetti). Spend the 9th (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, take a peaceful walk through Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, try to win big at The Reef Hotel Casino, and step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
