Jeremy and Robin saw us off at the train station and the train took us to the airport north of Brisbane. The low budget air fare to Cairns did not include the luggage which was oversized for the small plane's overhead bin and cost an extra 70$, a charge explicitly written in fine print. From the air, we caught our first glimpse …

A group of French tourists stumbled into the breakfast area of our hotel; two men and three women in their 70s. We said good morning to them but got blank stares in return; they really didn't seem to want to socialize. When I said "Bonjour" in French, it didn't help much, now they knew that we understood some of what they were saying and we may …

Rosamund, who knows people everywhere, happened to know a couple who live in Kuranda, a town on the Atherton Tableland approximately 25 km from Cairns reachable by both bus and train (if you don't have a car).

It's day green island

A travel blog entry by craigs902

Got to Green island about 11am, it was blowing a gale on the ocean and the swell was about 2-3mtr, so it made the ride out interesting. The island has changed from 20 odd yes ago but still looks really nice. The room has 2 queen beds, but the kids are not happy that they have to sleep with each other. One thing Carleen and I are happy about is they have a salad & fruit buffet lunch every ...

Cairns reunited!

... brekkie then set off. The ride started in but as the weather was **** and got worse so did the sea. Bouncing all over the place first time I've felt sea sick. Jake struggled to. Lucky we didn't drink before! After 2 hours we make it to the first stop. Me and Craig do a dive. Visibility was a bit **** but we managed to follow a massive sea turtle for about 5 mins which was cool. The coral was a bit **** though. Then lunch which was nice and on to second stop na little sand island ...

    We found the Balinese Motel a welcoming and quiet place to spend our 5 days in Cairns. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and quiet, and the location was within relatively easy walking distance from the centre of town and the waterfront. An enjoyable stay.
