The apartments here are very nice. Facilities include a nice pool and BBQ's and lovely maintained gardens. Although a little out of the main city centre (approx) 14klms, it suited out needs and we were able to negotiate the public transport by bus into town almost daily. It was easy although a little expensive
It's also very quiet at the resort and good for families.

... will lose sight of the boat and the rope very soon.

Once he got into that gear and up to speed he drove like a dream, ...
We have arrived! We landed at 4:32am which made our total travel time of 34 hours! For some reason we are both feeling fine and as our hotel room still wasn't ready we decided to have breakfast and go for a walk around the harbour and then along the beach! The atmosphere in Cairns is ...
... huge and the boat was like a rollarcoaster. We had a massive amount of Asian tourists on the boat who, in domino style, proceeded to vomit one after the other, whilst Natalie's neighbour clung to her arm! This is what we call "tourism revenge" for all the times they were rude to us!!!! Arriving on the Island we were a little disheartened by the state of the weather. But it all went away when we saw our room! Huge colonial decor and a bathroom you can fit my flat into! The island ...
... and with crocodiles not far away you wouldn't want to venture down there anyway. The pelican birds sit pretty on the rocks and spectacularly throw their heads back opening their flexible throats, guzzling down whatever treat they have caught. The hostel check in was intense as the lady basically shouted information at us for 10 minutes In a strong Aussie accent. She spoke at lightening speed, expecting us to remember the ridiculously long list of hostel rules. It was really ...
