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.
Family-friendly places like Scuba & Snorkeling and Four Mile Beach will thrill your kids. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Safaris).

To find other places to visit, where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Cairns trip builder tool .

In November in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
