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.
Step out of the city life by going to Scuba & Snorkeling and Safaris. You'll get in some beach time at Palm Cove Beach and Wonga Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Australian Butterfly Sanctuary (in Kuranda), Port Douglas (Horses in Port, Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas, &more) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). The adventure continues: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanical Gardens, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, and identify plant and animal life at Atherton Tablelands.

Batemans Bay to Cairns is an approximately 7-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Batemans Bay in November; daily highs in Cairns reach 36°C and lows reach 26°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
