Jeremy and Robin saw us off at the train station and the train took us to the airport north of Brisbane.

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.

TravelPod Member ReviewsBalinese Motel Cairns
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.
