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 Michaelmas Cay and Sunday Market Port Douglas. Get outdoors at Safaris and Palm Cove Beach. Take a break from Cairns with a short trip to Hartley's Crocodile Adventures in Palm Cove, about 44 minutes away. Spend the 15th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

For reviews, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read Cairns day trip site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November in Cairns, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 72°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
