    Travel Blogs from Cairns


    A travel blog entry by chinaski on Nov 06, 2014

    Actually I only spent a day in Cairns.

    There is also a lagoon (Cairns has no beach), perfect for the hotter days, as the city can be very hot and suffocating on summer.

    Ce matin, meeting au petit déjeuner. Comme prévu la route pour Cairns est toujours fermée à cause des inondations, je n’ai pas d’autre choix que d’y aller en avion si je veux faire la plongée et prendre mon vol pour Alice Springs samedi.. Il faut trouver 50 billets et je ne sais pas si j’aurais une place aujourd’hui...
