Flew to Cairns today and then drove 60 miles to Port Douglas in a major rain storm. Found our hotel / apartment a little disappointing as it doesn't look exactly as shown on the Internet. Tomorrow we visit the rainforest including a river cruise. Next day we are off to the Great Barrier Reef for snorkeling.

Port Douglas is a pretty town that caters to tourists so i think we will enjoy our stay. We had a nice dinner in an Italian restaurant in port Douglas and talked to our waitress about Australia but it turned out she was from Toronto - small world. We took a quick look at the beach here but probably won't go in the water as there are signs warning of jellyfish and crocodiles. Our GBR cruise takes us beyond these pests.
