    The YHA in Airlie Beach is a really tidy place, can't complain about it. As in most YHA, the crowd is a little older and more respectful of others, which we greatly appreciate. However, the activities advertized were not organized like the get together diners or the movie nights. It didn't really bother me that much but at least take down the signs so you don't get people think they pay to stay at some place where stuff is organized.

    Some good things are lovely common areas, nice kitchen and breakfast area. Room most expensive I have paid, except for Sydney, and rooms are a bit cramped in the new section. If I had to it it again, I probably would not stay in the room with the ensuite bath.... If you stay on the courtyard side, I think it can be noisy. But I faced out back on the fourth floor and it was fine.

    The day started off sunny as we headed north for the Daintree river cruise to spot some crocs. The cruise was nice and we …

    Sorry fans...quite an uneventful day to write about! Having decided to brave it and head to Cairns (Virgin were still flying there) I treated myself finally to a yummy breakfast at the Playfair Cafe in the Rocks where I made some friends from Melbourne (I didnt tell them about the poll I've got running!) and then bumped into my roommates so joined …
