G'day mate!

Finally after a looooong, tedious and 2 plane transfers we arrived in Brisbane, our point of entry. But wait, the burden is not yet over, upon landing at Brisbane International Airport we made a transfer at their domestic airport for our next and final journey, the Cairns. Of course the journey didn't come without a …

Juhu, endlich die große Hitze hinter uns lassen!!!

Oder auch nicht!

Cairns, tropisch heiß und schwül. Von einem Italiener der mit uns auf der Uluru-Tour war, und den wir lustigerweise in Darwin wiedergetroffen haben, haben wir ein schönes Hostel empfohlen bekommen, etwas außerhalb der Stadt, mit einem Shuttle-Bus der mehrmals am …

2,3 & 4 november 2012 De eerste drie dagen van ons verblijf in 'Cairns' waren heel erg op het gemak. We genoten ervan om eens "niets" te doen. We deden wel wat voorbereidingen voor onze volgende stops en keken eens in de toekomst voor ons verblijf van Thailand. We verkenden 'Cairns' vooral in de late namiddag omdat het tijdens de middag veel te …

Up to Cairns

A travel blog entry by hollyandstewart

Yesterday we flew 2hours 40minutes to Cairns. When we arrived at JJ Baackpackers we chilled for the remainder of the day.
Today we ventured through town to the man made lagoon which was huge. It had been purposely built due to the dangers of swimming in the sea. The water was so warm from the sun. We went to bed early as we have a day …

Cairns (14.05. - 14.07.2011)

A travel blog entry by line1607


Ich habe nun 2 wunderschöne Monate im facettenreichen Cairns verbracht. Cairns hat sehr viele Seiten: es ist eine kleine Stadt, die keinen Stress und keine Hektik kennt. Alles dort läuft sehr gechillt ab, jedoch haben sie ein sehr großes kostenfreies Sportprogramm zu bieten: Von Yoga bis Beachvolleyball über Meditation und Zumba (eine Art Salsatanz …

    Nice place

    Very nice place with super friendly and helpful staff. Nice rooms, I stayed in a 3-bed-room which was nice, though my bed was a bit uncomfortable. They offer loads of tours and book them for you. It's a quiet place and it's a bit far out from the city, but they have a courtesy shuttle to and from the city several times a day. Could probably use more fans in communal areas since it gets really hot and sticky in Cairns during summer months. Would stay there again!

    Very nice would stay here again, free breakfast and dinner. Also free shuttle bus into the centre which is only 20 mins walk, lovely walk along the esplanade back.
    Will help you out with anything and even get you cheaper deals on Greyhound and boat trips etc.
    Thank you!
