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 itinerary includes some good beach time at Cow Bay Beach and Yorkeys Knob Beach. Historic Village Herberton and Samurai Gallery Australia are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Venture out of the city with trips to Port Douglas (Horses in Port & Opal Reef), Birdworld Kuranda (in Kuranda) and Wonga Beach (in Wonga Beach). Spend the 16th (Fri) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. The adventure continues: step off the mainland to explore Michaelmas Cay, get great views at Rex Lookout, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in the dramatic natural features at Babinda Boulders.

For reviews, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Cairns tour itinerary maker website .

In November, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
