cairns in the rain
Having flown up from sunny Sydney, we were shocked to find cairns in a monsoon like season in March. Not a lot to do in the town aside from the GBR tours. We hired a car and drove North to port Douglas, then Kuranda where you can hold a koala :) and the daintree rainforest even further north at mossman gorge. Amazing day trip!
Insider Tip:Book your great barrier reef trip via the hostel desk in order to get a discount. Hire a car and get out of cairns.
