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 off the beaten path and head to Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness and St Mary’s by The Sea chapel. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Yungaburra (Artistree Gallery, Curtain Fig National Park, & more), Walu Wugirriga Lookout (in Cow Bay) and Port Douglas (Port Douglas Microlights, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more). Spend the 15th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 3rd (Thu) exploring nature at Lake Eacham Crater Lakes National Park. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Historic Village Herberton, capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Birdworld Kuranda, and head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay.

November in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
