Flew from Alice Springs, arriving in Cairns to rain - which was to be the norm for the next few weeks.. be it in shower form - through to major flooding down pours..  :(

Cairns can be done in a day - although there are day trips and tours once you escape civilisation - and of course the sea might have something to offer.. ;)

The town has this fabulous man-made lagoon for chilling/swimming, as the area is actually just mangrove swamps.

I popped into the local museum = a very entertaining experience - a slightly crazy tour guide who got us all to 'wear' croc skulls, shark jaws and even sawfish! Other weird stuff included gas-operated irons and water-powered kitchen mixers - it was all there!

The YHA had a great communal area - including pool and spa - extremely nice having a foot spa when waiting for midnight Greyhound buses! As I left the rain cleaned out Cairns.
