    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.

    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). The road to Kuranda is steep, narrow, and windy and we passed one tow truck hauling a car out of the dense bush that had slipped over the …

    ... some new fish and coral life, and I stumbled upon a huge spotted fish hiding in the coral that I'd never seen before. We also got longer on the second dive. It was definitely one of the best experiences of my life and a great way to spend my birthday. As we headed back I got chatting to Matt and mentioned it was my birthday so off he disappeared and came back with a free corona...happy birthday to me! He also said I should look to do my diving course and I'm definitely going ...

    Our third day in Cairns was the day Kirk had been waiting for the whole trip - scuba diving / snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef. To say it was amazing would be an understatement - breathtaking and spectacular come to mind. There are so many different types of coral and fish it's almost too much to take in. After I (Katie) got over an initial bout of sea sickness ...
