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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like St Monica's Cathedral and McLeod Street Pioneer Cemetery. Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Palm Cove Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Cairns side-trips: Wonga Beach (in Wonga Beach), Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman) and Port Douglas (Horses in Port, Safaris, &more). There's much more to do: hike along Esplanade Boardwalk, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands.

To see other places to visit, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, read our Cairns sightseeing planner.

Batemans Bay to Cairns is an approximately 9-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Batemans Bay in November, expect Cairns to be a bit warmer, temps between 36°C and 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
