    Hides Hotel is a fairly basic hotel close to all the action in Cairns. It is a couple of blocks away from the shops and the Esplanade. It is a historic building with lots of character and good sized rooms

    I stayed for 3 nights in Oct 2011. This is a VERY basic accommodation. The "double" bed is in fact to single box springs (on wheels) with a double mattress laid on top. In the night a roll to the center of the bed send the to box springs splaying out with the result the double mattress becomes a taco shell around you!. A quite puzzling way to be awaken.
    It is cheap and near to the beach and plenty of good dining and clubs.

    Today was a long day on the bus. We had an 8 hour drive up to Cairns for the last of our tour, and for me, the last couple of days in Australia. It has been a wonderful few weeks, and it's hard to imagine that I have been gone for almost 3 weeks already. I think the longest trip I have ever been on before this was maybe 16 days when I went to …

    Up early for breakfast today and to see if skydiving can go ahead. It was raining and cloudy so wasn't holding up much hope. Tara confirmed that the jump was going ahead so we got the bus to the airport at 7.30am. I went with Max, Chloe and Eva. We signed in and I got a T-Shirt! We had to wait an hour and a half for confirmation of the flight. We …

    Woke up to sunshine today and had breakfast on the hotels balcony. Booked a skydive with Ash for an 11am collection. Packed my day bag and waited for the skydive shuttle bus. Due to windy weather we waited for an hour and a half and then it was called off :-( We decided to go to the wildlife dome instead, where we saw lots of native animals …

    Had a lie in today, it was lovely. Had a lazy morning in the hostel updating facebook and blog. Myself, Jenna and Nicole walked into town to look at some shops. It's Christmas in July here so they have put up Christmas decorations which is strange in the sun. We had a bite to eat and then chilled out around the pool, waiting for my bus transfer to …
