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 get in some beach time at Wonga Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Tablelands, Waterfalls, and Spanish Castle and Birdworld Kuranda. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Curtain Fig National Park (in Yungaburra), Horses in Port (in Port Douglas) and Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba). And it doesn't end there: look for all kinds of wild species at Atherton Tablelands, relax in the rural setting at Gallo DairyLand, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, and take in the dramatic natural features at Babinda Boulders.

To find where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Cairns route tool .

In November, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
