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.
Visiting Daintree Discovery Centre and Hartley's Crocodile Adventures will get you outdoors. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Historic Village Herberton and St Monica's Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Cape Tribulation (Daintree Rainforest - Cooper Creek Wilderness, Daintree National Park, & more), Port Douglas (Funstuff by Lynda, Sunday Market Port Douglas, & more) and Walshs Pyramid (in Gordonvale). Spend the 1st (Thu) among aquatic life with a scuba or snorkeling tour. Spend the 14th (Fri) exploring nature at Curtain Fig National Park. The adventure continues: get into the urban bustle at Tanks Arts Centre, stroll through Palm Cove Beach, hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, and look for gifts at Australian Leather Company.

In November, daily temperatures in Cairns can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
