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.
Step out of the city life by going to Atherton Tablelands and Curtain Fig National Park. Get a sense of the local culture at Historic Village Herberton and Samurai Gallery Australia. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cairns: Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda), Wonga Beach (in Wonga Beach) and Port Douglas (Horses in Port & Opal Reef). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Yorkeys Knob Beach, explore the striking landscape at Babinda Boulders, tour the pleasant surroundings at Trinity Beach, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Cairns trip itinerary maker tool.

November in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 19th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
