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.
Family-friendly places like Scuba & Snorkeling and Trinity Beach will thrill your kids. Relax by the water at Palm Cove Beach and Four Mile Beach. Explore Cairns' surroundings by going to Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more), Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti) and Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda). There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool, have some family-friendly fun at Cairns Kart Hire Track, and do a tasting at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery.

In November, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
