Northern Waters // Cairns Life // Circus
You know you have reached Croc territory when there are signs at every single water point - lagoons, the ocean, a river, a bridge, the list goes on! So enjoying the view from a distance, our first night in Cairns was spent with the view above, a morning sunrise over the East Coast.
In three weeks we explored Cairns & the surrounding area. Taking a trip to Kurranda, which turned out to be a tourist trap filled with little market stalls, sunbathing at the lagoon ( Cairns doesn't have a beach), visiting the Stardust Circus, voted the best circus in Australia & ending a long day wandering the night markets and local restaurants in the evenings!
The scenic road to Port Augustus is incredible & definitely worth a trip. The road runs right along the coast and into rainforest. The little town has loads of shops and cafe's to waste hours in, while the four mile beach is lined with coconut palm trees. Paradise!
For me, the main highlight of travelling so far North on the East Coast was the Barrier Reef Trip - Post to come!
