Today was a free day as we weren’t due to fly out to Cairns until later that afternoon. After a walk around the town we chilled out in the pool before saying our farewell to Shorty and the outback ready for the East coast.
After landing in Cairns early afternoon, we were met at the airport by our driver Leigh. He gave us a brief tour and pointed out a few places of interest on our way to the hotel. Once we’d checked in we headed out to wander around the town. We decided to head to the night markets for a spot of shopping before drinks at the Rattle & Rum bar, situated on the Esplanade. After a few drinks we headed back to our hotel to rest up ready for exploring Cairns in the morning.
