We got dropped off so Stef could get a Paudi head massage - Aboriginal head massage basically. It was alright, nothing to rave about though, had some nice tea at the end.
We then got to Parrotfish hostel at about 6, booked in and got a spacious 6 dorm room with only one other persons stuff in. Turns out he came in while we were sleeping and left before we got up.
Had a really nice Veggie Lasagne and got a phonecall from Stef's dad which was nice. then just chilled out in our room.. Freya sleep whisper sang during the night. (It was to StraightLines by Silverchair though, so it was a great song!) But yeah, an early night was needed after a day of hanging about and travelling.
Freya got woken up early by our roommate farting and pissing, but she went back to sleep again. A little while later we got up anyway because we were going to Breakfast with the Birds. SAFE!
We got a bus to "The Rainforest Habitat" (a bit like a zoo) and got our tickets and sat down for brekkie. We ate LOOOOAAAADSSS. Fruit, pastries, muffins, juices, the usual buffett kinda thing. All you can eat is a great idea for backpacking!! Birds kept flying about and landing on the tables of people eating, it was cute. There was a pair of Black Cockatoos. They were grooming eachother, it was so adorable.
We went on a tour with a lady but she was so dull and non-factual that we roamed off to explore of our own accord, much more fun. We saw Koalas (they smell so bad!) and then we saw Wallabies and Kangaroos which we got to feed and stroke them all. We saw a HUGE Kanga and called him Big Red. He was like a bodybuilder. KILLERROO! Litrally. Howard moon would shit his pants over this bad boy.
We bussed it back to Port D and decided to have a bit of a shoppe. We met some lovely lovely gay guys who owned a dress shop and they were so nice they let us look at their brand new stock that wasn't even in the shop yet. We also bought some croc shoes because we are now scene - unlike fall out boy. We had good icecream, chose from 42flavours and then had a drawing competition on the beach.
Got picked up from the Parotfish lodge - hostel at half fourish and were driven back to Cairns by a cool guy. Checked back in to Tropic Days and turns out that our dormmate was Amanda who we met there last week! SAFE. Stef cooked yummy food for all 3 of us and then we chilled before beddies.
