Lovely apartments just a few metres from the beach. The pool and hot tub are great too and have a lot of shady areas which is good to cool down in. Well equipped rooms and helpful staff.

Woke early. 6am, after a good nights sleep .Nice cup of tea and then catch the 8.15 bus to Cairns.Very warm but a bit cloudy at times. First stop breakfast on sea front. Joyce ..scrambled egg with Ciabatta and tomato with me having Gypsy Eggs...2 poached eggs,chorizo sausage,bacon and a spicy tomato sauce with chick peas...absolutely scrummy!!!!!! …

I will stay in Cairns for 4 nights. I hope to visit the Great Barrier Reef ,....go to the Koala Farm, visit an Aborigines Village, and check out the Cairns Markets. But first,.....I will get out of these grubby clothes, shower, and S-L-E-E-P! Sweet,...sweet sleep!
So,....will sign off for now. Welcome to Australia,.....'Good on ya Mate'!
... to walk when the boat is rocking so much was quite difficult and by the time we got outside it was probably long gone! We did feel a little nauseated on the reef today but that had nothing to do with the motion of the ocean. It was because of Monica and Ian, the irritating couple who were sat opposite us. They were the same age as us but they spoke to each other in very annoying childish voices! Oh, and so you're probably wondering ...
