We stayed for one night before a very early flight the next morning, but the friendliness of the staff, the comfort of the room, the pool and the bbq were exactly what we needed to relax before heading home. The hotel is very conveniently located between the airport and downtown. The room had everything we needed; a Queen bed, a kitchenette, ensuite bathroom and a microwave and fridge. They also had lots of little notes throughout the room with suggestions on where to eat, how to get around and just plenty of helpful tips. There was a little hiccup when we checked in but the staff proved very professional and fixed everything up for us. It really was no big deal and had no impact on our enjoyment of the place. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Nothing on the agenda today apart from an hours drive to Cairns, finding our hotel and returning the car to the airport. We took our time leaving Port Douglas and decided on a detour into the mountains to take in the Australian Butterfly Sanctuary. The guided tour was quite amusing as well as informative as the guy who took us round was like an …
... as most of our journeys will probably be 7 hours minimum. Having worked out our transport, the 3 excursions we were interested in were Magnetic Island which has lots of wildlife, mainly koalas with the hostel being in a location where they roam around you. Whitsundays is a boat trip known for its beautiful beaches around a few scattered islands. And lastly Fraser Island speaks for itself, the trip is more practical, there ...
... all curated beautifully and was a pretty interesting place for both us and the children (lots of interactive displays). There was also a gorgeous gift shop that had we again had money and space in the car we could have gone a little crazy.
It felt wrong to be in the area and not stay at our favourite little camp spot so we took a little detour off the track and set up stumps at the Henrietta Creek campground again. Naturally the children and Dom had a bush bath.
... However, surfers as a place is rather tacky and is wannabe American. The nightlife is rather rubbish but, we definitely made the most of it and hit the town, feeling like the 3 amigos. There are a lot of theme parks here but instead, we decided to pay a visit to an animal sanctuary just outside the city. Such a hilarious day spooning kangaroos and feeding birds. We were also able to do an adventure ropes activity through the trees which was hard but such a rush. I became rather ...
... are quite hard to distinguish as you leave the boat. The second time around, I decided to stay a bit closer to James and Junior (we've got no idea where Joe ‘Jellyfish’ Northcott went) and it proved to be a wise move. As we were admiring a particularly bright section of the reef, I went above the water’s surface to adjust my snorkel when I heard a shout from Junior. In an instant I went back under and, along with the other two, was treated to well over ...
