          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

          Heute war ich im botanischen Garten hier in Cairns. Wie schon gesagt, die Stadt ist nicht wirklich groß und das soll laut Reiseführer einer der Sehenswürdigkeiten sein neben der Touristenattraktion Esplanade und Museen (und ich bin nicht unbedingt der größte Museen Fan) also Rucksack geschultert und los.

          The Great Barrier Reef

          ... some of the people from the hostel. We headed out and met some people for the boat and had a few more drinks. The following day it was time to sort everything out! We got our bus ticket and booked our tours for down the coast. Tonight we are going to chill as we have to catch an early bus tomorrow. Cairns is really nice, completely different to what I expected. It is a little sleepy town, i thought it was a city! The great barrier reef was amazing! I would recommend both to everyon
