Tropical Far North Queensland

This is about my holiday from Cairns to
Laura, on the lower Cape York Peninsula from
September 2008 to October 2008. Going from Melbourne to Cairns to Port Douglas, to Cooktown and Laura, Cape Tribulation and all the bits in between, and finally back to Cairns for my flight home.

3. Cairns - Around The City Mall

Saturday 20 September
Strolling along Shields Street was fun - lots of pubs with people sitting at small tables enjoying a beer (or wine), and plenty of cafes and bistros. Every one of them had tables and chairs on the footpath and people just sat and lazed around. dining "al fresco" is one of the most popular ways of eating in Cairns and the weather is just made for it.

Cairns Plaza

I sat in the middle on a round wall in the middle of this intersection and watched the comings and goings of people as they went about their way, and spoke with many of the "locals".

Cairns was an enjoyable place to be and unlike some who say it is boring, I found this untrue. I loved the gaeity and holiday atmosphere that abounded. I sat chatting with a local chap for almost an hour and he told me stories of the area. He was a nice fellow who informed me that everybody had air conditioning and in summer everyone pops out early in the morning then it's back inside until the evening.

Cairns Mall Playground

What a wonderful splash of colour this children's play equipment provided. The backdrop was a stage.
