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.

All in all... Every day's an adventure. Learning a little about the world and myself everyday. Incredible sights and incredible people. Kind of a broken record on this one, but it's all about the people and I couldn't ask to meet better or more interesting people. ...
... I.P. So it went on until he delivered us to the train station. A fun start to the day.
We had tickets on the Kuranda Scenic Railway, construction of which began in 1886 when up to 1500 men, armed with only picks and shovels, built 37 k of track. The climb from sea level is almost 300 metres, through 15 hand made tunnels, 55 bridges and 98 curves. The views are spectacular and the train, which had 14 carriages slowed ...
