Tully river rafting day!

Was up at 5am to get ready and call home! At 6.30am I was picked up along with a few others from my hostel and we headed to the 'Raging Thunder' office where we checked in.

Headed off early to the markets around the esplanade which were fun to go around. Then later I wandered around the main shopping mall in the centre of Cairns- just looking as there is literally no room left in my suitcase for anymore purchases!!!

    Really big hostel. The rooms are really basic. Its probably a good place to meet lots of people.
    Only downside is that everything is noisy, buy ear plugs if you want a decent nights sleep
