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.
Take a break from the city and head to Daintree Discovery Centre and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. Do some cultural sightseeing at Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove), Mareeba Tropical Savannah and Wetland Reserve (in Mareeba) and Port Douglas (Funstuff by Lynda, The Reef Marina, & more). Spend the 20th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's much more to do: get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre, look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track.

To find ratings, maps, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Cairns vacation tool .

In November, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
