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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Cairns Dinner Theatre. Step off the beaten path and head to Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness and Atherton Tablelands. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Historic Village Herberton (in Herberton), Port Douglas (St Mary’s by The Sea chapel, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more) and Jaques Coffee Plantation (in Mareeba). Spend the 21st (Thu) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. There's much more to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Cairns Aquarium, explore and take pictures at Gallo DairyLand, head off the coast to Michaelmas Cay, and learn about all things military at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Thu) so you can travel back home.
