I'll try to tell you about it in order....

Day 98 Saturday 05/02/05 Alice Springs - Cairns We returned the Hertz car and then headed into the town. We walked along Todd Mall - the shopping hub of this quiet town - only a population of about 25-30,000. We then headed to the Cultural Precinct where we visited a local Art Gallery with some local Aboriginal art (which I guess you'd learn to …

The Tablelands

... have been very inviting were it not for the snake guarding the access ramp... After lunch we went to a larger explosive crater, Lake Barrine, but weren't nearly as impressed as we had been by Lake Eacham.

We stopped in Malanda briefly, on the way to the Gallo Dairy, to view the Malanda falls and check out the amazing mosaics showcasing the town's history. The information centre was ...

... and set our selves up there. We made an awesome lunch and then headed to the Mossman Gorge for some hiking. We decided to walk to the gorge path (about 2km) instead of taking the $5 (one way) shuttle. We came to a flooded section of the road that was just deep enough for us to not be able to walk through with our shoes on. We were trying to decide if we wanted to take off our shoes and walk through or turn back and perhaps take the shuttle. ...

    I liked living in this shared house with a couple of friends. 5 people in a two room appartment is not ideal, but it worked out very good. Clean rooms, nice kitchen & livingroom (with 1 threeseater en a oneseater, big tv and airco) and ok bathroom with good shower. You can eat outside on one of the two pick-nick tabels (in stone). There is also a nice little pool.
