Cairns

— 8 nights

The Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Hartley's Crocodile Adventures (in Wangetti), Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more) and Palm Cove (Spas & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 9th (Tue) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 11th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, stroll through Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, don't miss a visit to Green Island, and take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens.

To find maps, where to stay, photos, and tourist information, go to the Cairns day trip tool.

November in Cairns sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 26°C at night.
