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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Safaris, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 23rd (Fri) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip itinerary planner.

In November in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 27th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
