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.
Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Paronella Park (in Mena Creek), Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Port Douglas (Port Douglas Tennis Club, Safaris, & more). Spend the 2nd (Mon) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, admire the natural beauty at Botanical Gardens, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, and explore and take pictures at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures.

For maps, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, read our Cairns trip planner .

In November in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
