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 Palm Cove Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Four Mile Beach and Nudey Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Cairns: Port Douglas (Horses in Port, Safaris, &more), Wonga Beach (in Wonga Beach) and Shannonvale Tropical Fruit Winery (in Mossman). The adventure continues: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St Monica's Cathedral, enjoy the sand and surf at Trinity Beach, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

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.
