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.
On the 29th (Thu), stroll through Palm Cove Beach, then learn about all things military at The Australian Armour & Artillery Museum, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 30th (Fri): look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Cairns International Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. On the 1st (Sat), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
