Cairns

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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). Spend the 4th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
