    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.

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 …

    ... him two days to get home on the train as it would stop over night. It was great to see! We have been waiting two months to see a train on the track! We saw Lake Tinaroo which is our main water supply and in the picture of the water map, you can see all the rivers that we have seen and how far the water supply goes, it leads straight in to Lisa and Ed's water supply and it's what we use to shower.
