    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

    ... been kept so busy helping in the teahouse she had forgotten and there was no emergency tank. All was ok at first. We were away from the bank, there was no wind and the sun was out. She tried calling on the radio but no-one seemed to be listening. A passenger suggested calling on the phone and fortunately I had the number on a postcard I had bought. Unfortunately, there was no phone reception! Our guide kept calling on the radio - no response. We ...

    ... t a stop either) seemed to be a stretch.
    We followed the track under the highway to where we were told to wait for a bus but we thought we'd be able to follow a path along the road to the go kart track, but the path ended and there's no way I was agreeing to walking along the side of the highway. Besides it was ******* down rain and we were just standing there getting drenched with no way to walk to the go karts and no bus coming our way.

    ... br> The realisation of how steep those hills are when we were walking up them instead of down them made me quietly happy that I was in a state that got us out of running as it would have been a mighty hard task, although I would have taken the challenge and given it a red hot go.

    The walk is a damn good workout in itself and it was pretty warm this morning. The sky was free of cloud for the first time since we've been here so we knew we were in ...

It was a great change to eat at a place that really understood our allergies and the lack of a language barrier was also a plus. For dessert we popped to the shop next door which served some of the best gelato I've ever ...
