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.
We've included these beaches for you: Four Mile Beach and Palm Cove Beach. Get a sense of the local culture at Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Rex Lookout (in Wangetti) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 6th (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 5th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk and stroll the grounds of McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery.

To see reviews, photos, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Cairns trip maker site .

November in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
