With all our luggage we hopped on the boat to go, first at Green Island. Andre wanted to do some scuba diving and he proposed that I do a guided excursion in snorkeling through the coral reef. In the beginning I wasn't too sure about me snorkeling through corals in high sea.

... hostel today and go for a wander round Cairns tomorrow to try and get a feel for the town.

Hoping to catch the rugby union final tonight too but it doesn't ko while 2am here so we'll see. Should have some pics too upload Tom too!! ...

helpful. I recommend the Ocean Free any time. ...
... Michaelmas Cay. A Bird and Turtle sanctuary! so as you can imagine, a lot of birds were seen, although the turtles were far harder to find! We did however suceed in our quest to find a turtle and followed it as it mystically floated through the water; was just magical! we also saw Giant clams, Sting rays, and even more crazy fish and coral! No sharks though, much to our disappointment!
Once back on ...
