    Ok, but a long walk to town

    Nice, large rooms, well maintained and friendly managers. But the rooms are starting to get a bit dated and the place is right down the hospital end of town quite a hike to the main part of Cairns

    Took the 8.45 train from Smithfield Station up the range to Kuranda. Spectacular scenery of the mountains, waterfalls, coast and Barron Gorge. Walked through the markets and township of Kuranda. Caught the skyrail home over the top of all the trees and gorges. Out to tea with Tony, Helen and ...

    ... and good." I think the much of the same could be said for Canada...

    Their language, culture, government, and laws appear to be more influenced by the British system then ours- but without the upper class snobbery of the British. Actually we found absolutely no pretentiousness in any of the Australians we met. I would say they are the most outgoing and chatty group I have seen in any one country. They are very informal- calling everyone 'mate' and ...

    ... out to the reef but boy was it worth it. I chose to do an introductory dive. We arrived at the reef, got into our wetsuits and scuba gear. Tanks on I hopped into the water. Very bizarre feeling to say the least, takes a lot to override the instinct and take that first breath when completely submerged but once over that unnatural moment it was generally plain sailing. The world in the ocean is just extraordinary and diving gives a much better perspective of it. On the first dive I saw, ...

    ... held a sea cucumber which looked a bit dodgy! After the dive we had lunch and headed to Green Island by speed boat. We probably got as wet in that journey as the dive! The island was stunning and we walked around the island in about half hour... It really is small. After that we chilled on the beach and head back to the boat. The trip home was one of the most terrifying experience of my life. They put the sails up and the boat felt like it ...

    ... into the holiday heat. Beautiful. I was up earlier than usual this morning, partly because someone decided to knock on the dorm room door for nearly 15 minutes (I would be buggered if I was going to be the one to get up and answer it - not only was I the furtherest from the door, but anyone that wants to get in at 3 in the morning without a key doesn't deserve to get in) and partly because I had a job trial. I was early for the trial so I called mom from a nearby hotspot ...
