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.
Start off your visit on the 25th (Sun): discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Keep things going the next day: kick back and relax at Trinity Beach and then experience rural life at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures.

Take the guesswork out of planning a Cairns vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

Los Angeles, USA to Cairns is an approximately 17-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Australian Eastern Standard Time (Queensland) (AEST), which is usually a 18 hour difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Los Angeles in November, with highs in Cairns at 87°F and lows at 72°F.
