Norma and Matt’s Travel Diary

Tuesday, 21 Nov 2006

Location: Cairns, Australia

MapTop of the world to ya from down under! With much disappointment we have left the beautiful coastline of Port Douglas and are now in downtown Cairns. The hotel here is still very nice though. Quick update on the past couple of days...Snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef was not idea. Conditions here are VERY windy and the visiblity was limited although the water was very warm and beatuiful! Yesterday we took a FIRST CLASS train ride into the Kundara rainforest area. We saw some very nice scenary, several waterfalls, and we even got to pet some Koala's and Kangaroo's :) Oh yeah, we even got to feed some really cool looking birds, followed by a Skyrail cable car ride back down the mountain over the rainforest canopy! WHAT A SIGHT! We had a blast. Today has been a day of leisure in Cairns so we just took it easy and did some sight seeing. We are getting ready for our overnight trip to the Undara Lava Tubes. We are really excited about tomorrows trip (we will take lots of pictures; sorry we can't download because we forgot the cable for the camera but we will try to find one). Matt also learned how to play the Didgeredoo today...
Well, it's getting late here, or early there??? so we are going to sign off for now. Try to update you when we get back from Undara! TAKE CARE EVERYONE!!! We miss you!
Ciao 4 now,
Norma & Matt
