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.
Bring the kids along to Four Mile Beach and Safaris. You'll get in some beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Trinity Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cairns: Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas & Coffee Works) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Spas & Wellness). Spend the 13th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. The adventure continues: look for all kinds of wild species at Mossman Gorge, pause for some photo ops at Cairns Cenotaph, learn about winemaking at Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery, and take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour.

To see photos, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, use the Cairns trip itinerary maker tool .

In November, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
