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.
Get in touch with nature at Daintree Discovery Centre and Four Mile Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Safaris & Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas) and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Palm Cove). Spend the 17th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's more to do: have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

Plan my day in Cairns using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Melbourne to Cairns is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. When traveling from Melbourne in November, plan for somewhat warmer days and warmer nights in Cairns: temperatures range from 36°C by day to 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
