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.
Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at Daintree Discovery Centre and Rainforest Gems Gallery & Studio. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach) and Port Douglas (Safaris, Four Mile Beach, & more). Spend the 13th (Wed) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. There's still lots to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, take a tour by water with Shaolin Junk Cruises, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach, and look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge.

If you are flying in from Guernsey, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
