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.
Escape the urban bustle at Daintree Discovery Centre and Four Mile Beach. Museum-lovers will appreciate Historic Village Herberton and Bones and Jones. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Port Douglas (Safaris, Funstuff by Lynda, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 17th (Sat) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 24th (Sat) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. There's still lots to do: take a stroll around Tanks Arts Centre, browse the eclectic array of goods at Rusty's Market, get your game on at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and trek along Esplanade Boardwalk.

For more things to do, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, go to the Cairns trip builder .

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
