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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Four Mile Beach and Trinity Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures) and Safaris (in Port Douglas). Spend the 22nd (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

To see photos, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Cairns route planning tool .

November in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
