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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Port Douglas (Safaris, Port Douglas Tennis Club, & more), Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach, Hartley's Crocodile Adventures, & more) and Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness & Daintree National Park). Spend the 11th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 6th (Thu) exploring nature at Barron Gorge National Park. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and make a trip to Green Island.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
