We arrived in Cairns after a 24hour bus journey which suprisingly wasn't that bad at all. We put our tent up in the dark when we got there!
The next day we explored the town and did lots of sensible stuff like closing our Oz bank accounts now that we are not working anymore and also changed our flights home! The town is really nice with a manmade beach right by the sea. The weather has been really hot and sunny.
The next night we went to a circus, lennon Brothers. Some parts were rubbish like the animal tamer who wasnt very good at getting the lions or geese to do what they were told! Although a different man did tricks with dogs which were pretty good. They had not very funny clowns but the acrobatic bits were quite good. and we had candy floss and popcorn to keep us going!
The next day we went over to Fitzroy island where we could snorkel go on a glass bottom boat to see the gret barrier reef. We also sunbathed on the beach. One beach was called nudey beach! it wasnt a nudist beach though!
Onour last day we are getting ready to go to alice springs where we are starting out 5 day outback tour
