    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

    We're up at 05.30 ready to pack and leave our room at the sharehouse (yay!). It hasn't been the best place to spend 8 nights as it's far too much like halls of residence for us and nobody locks the front door! Anyways Terry is straight out to the kitchen cooking us up some bacon sarnies for later - yummy!
    We walk to the jetty for our 7am meet and the morning light is gorgeous across the esplanade and lagoon. We get on the boat ...

    We wake to another glorious sunny day and get ready for our last excursion. This is a trip to the tropical rain forests that surround Cairns. This is in two parts, the first is by cable car (the Skyrail) straight up the mountain, over the top and then across the trees to the town of Kuranda. The second (after spending some time there) was to journey back to Cairns by the scenic Kuranda railway, which is in the top 10 rail journeys in the world. Following pick up by ...

    ... covering the whole town street we decided to jump on the first bus back into the city. Within an hour of arriving in Glebe we were back in Sydney! Wondered round the city again, had a pie and sorted our phones out.

    We then headed back to Glebe and parked ourselves in the local park with our books until the sun went down.

    Noodles for dinner and then we hit our beds. Unfortunately it's the type of ...
