Well, it's our last day in Cairns today which is sorta sad but we're also ready for the next place, Townsville.
Yesterday was a good day spent on a tour of Cape Tribulation and Daintree. The only problem was that the average age on the bus was about 60 so we felt mega young and there were a few cringing moments but they were a nice bunch. There was only 20 of us in total so it was a personal trip. We visited Daintree national park, went for an hours cruise on the Daintree river (Where we saw 4 crocodiles and 3 snakes in the wild), had a nice buffet lunch and went upto the lookout of Cape Tribulation. The amazing thing about Cape Tribulation is that it is supposed to be the only place in the world where rainforrest meets reef so it's pretty amazing. We were sorta dissapointed with the view though as it was quite dull. The weather has been rainy over the past couple of days too so the water was a more murky colour so the pictures aren't amazing as we'd hoped. It was still a good trip though! The best thing about the trip we chose was the fact that we got to go to an aerial walkway though the rainforrest canopy which was good. We got to go on different walkways and look at all the trees and try to spot wildlife (but we didn't see any because I think the rain had scared them!) We got picked up at 7.15am and didn't get back until 7.30pm so it was a really long day but was fun and educational. We had a right laugh looking back on it last night over our meal.
Well, today we did a wash and began packing and then wandered to a market near the lagoon. There wasn't much there but it was good to wander around! We then found a shopping mall this afternoon (probably a bad thing) which we wandered around. It had a Jay Jays (my favourite shop in Australia) and yes Chris bought me a T-shirt for $15! Whoopeeeeeeeeee! Well, you see we have a little problem that we did a tumble dry in Mission Beach and put it on a bit high so we've now got some crop top style tops which don't look too good. hehehe! Sory, I'm giggling like mad whilst trying to write this! Well, Jay Jays is such good value I got a lovely pink polo t-shirt style top which i'm going to now replace one of my smaller items with!
We're now going to make our way back to the hostel and finish packing. We'll then pop out for tea and have a last wander around the night markets before going to bed early as our bus is at 7am!
P.s. More photos are on the website! ENJOY!
