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 discover tucked-away gems like Historic Village Herberton and St Mary’s by The Sea chapel. Step out of Cairns to go to Palm Cove and see Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, which is approximately 44 minutes away. Spend the 17th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, and identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 72°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
