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.
Head to Underart Gallery and Cairns Central Shopping Centrefor some retail therapy. Get some cultural insight at Historic Village Herberton and Samurai Gallery Australia. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Four Mile Beach, Funstuff by Lynda, &more), Palm Cove (Palm Cove Beach & Hartley's Crocodile Adventures) and Kuranda (Kuranda Candy Kitchen, Australian Butterfly Sanctuary, &more). And it doesn't end there: take a memorable tour with Tours, kick back and relax at Trinity Beach, stop by Luminous Lights, and enjoy some diversion at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see other places to visit, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, read our Cairns travel planner.

In November in Cairns, expect temperatures between 36°C during the day and 26°C at night. On the 9th (Wed), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
