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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Port Douglas (Horses in Port, Safaris, & more) and Palm Cove (Hartley's Crocodile Adventures & Palm Cove Beach). Spend the 29th (Fri) exploring nature at Daintree National Park. Next up on the itinerary: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, skim along the rocks with a canyoning and rapelling tour, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and stroll through Esplanade Boardwalk.

In November, daytime highs in Cairns are 36°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
