... company who does a half day trip to a place called green island and you can go out in a glass bottom boat and look at the coral. Didn't book just yet.. Will call them in the morning I think... Came back to the campsite and decided to have a shower and get dressed in club colours, with vest. ( I have been walking around incognito all morning, so decided it was time to represent) Noticed a few more things around the site.. A dude ...
... Josephine Falls - which was a natural water slide and the sighting of the biggest spider yet :/ eeeek! We finished the day with afternoon tea, which was another lovely spread; cake, cinnamon muffins, fresh melon, pineapple, dragon fruit (which was not as tasty as I imagined) and some delicious tea! After the wet, soggy, sleepy drive home after a day of adventure, climbing, jumping and ice cold waters we all decided we had earned ...
... to! I am having such a great time and seeing so many amazing and beautiful places. The tours are pricey but totally worth it because I don't have a car and I love all the knowledge they share with you- plus I don't have to worry about anything! Food, transportation, everything is taken care of. I just can't believe some of the things I've seen! I'm STILL thinking about how gorgeous snorkeling was at Lady Musgrave island and I am ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMantra Esplanade Cairns
The mantra esplanade is in a terrific location right on the esplanade and close to everything. The apartments are your typical one bedroom apartment style with a small kitchenette and laundry.
The front office service was inconsistent, some days we would have really helpful staff and the other days we had staff members That seemed rather disinterested and didn't dally want to be there answering my questions. I also felt the security was very relaxed as we were not checked for our name or photo any time we needed our card rewritten to get in the room.
The bed is very soft, which I found uncomfortable as I have a bad back, but I'm sure this would suit other people. All in all this was an okay stay, it just did not feel quite upto the regular mantra standard.
