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 a short trip to Historic Village Herberton in Herberton (about 1h 30 min away). Spend the 18th (Sun) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Next up on the itinerary: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay and look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, use the Cairns trip planner.

In November, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
