Where I stayed
I took the tour, because I didn't have a waterproof camera to take photos in the sea
After I returned the snorkelling gear, I left for a walk around the island. The small island had a good trail around it and it didn't take much time to go the circuit of the island. I watched parasailing skiers on the way and a helicopter hoovering around the sea. Those were the activities I should have tried in the island. I found a crocodile farm, but it was not attractive enough for me to pay AUD18. Incidentally, the farm keeps the world's largest crocodile Cassius. I really had nothing to do until my boat would depart at 14:30. I didn't like the island very much as well as the tour..
When I came back to Cairns, there was a weekend market and the Mandolin Festival going on in the esplanade lagoon area. I got through the market, dropping by at a stall sometimes, but nothing was interesting. Eventually, I just had dinner in the food court again and spent the rest of my time in Cairns surfing the Net at my hostel. I was not so satisfied with that Cairns trip, but it was time to leave. I collected my baggage and headed for the airport by shuttle bus. My flight left Cairns at 7 pm and arrived at Sydney at 10 pm. Then I checked in the hostel where I had stayed two weeks ago. On the next day, I enjoyed sightseeing in the Rocks with a weekend market. It was the first time to visit the Rocks in seven years. Seven years ago, I felt miserable after Jenny had left me and I just wandered around the area without thinking about anything... Although I was not interested in the streets this time too, it was good to spend a half day without spending a single dollar.
