Cairns — 7 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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Hartley's Crocodile Adventures. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Scuba & Snorkeling and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Port Douglas (Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, Safaris, &more) and Palm Cove Beach (in Palm Cove). The adventure continues: trek along Esplanade Boardwalk, let little ones run wild at Muddy's Playground, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and have fun at Esplanade Lagoon Pool.

To see traveler tips, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Cairns route planner.

In November, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 26°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
