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.
Step out of the city life by going to Safaris and Four Mile Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Daintree National Park (in Cape Tribulation), Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 15th (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk, have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

For where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Cairns trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. November in Cairns sees daily highs of 87°F and lows of 72°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
