Cairns and the Reef

soooo now I am almost at the end of my east coast Australia tour :)

When I arrived the tide was low and I recognized the forest fire that went on for three days straight..

Maybe the Cairns guns started the fire :) I heard that the Koalas are attacking the city and this action was just self defense from the government. IMG_8349 IMG_8354

so let’s get to the white mountain hiking course…it is a 7km walk along the beach just to reach the designated area.

“Jogging prohibited” does certainly not help to get rid of the obesity problem in Australia…I am just saying!

reef is up next…

I took the cheapest ferry to get out on the reef and it was just amazing…a 2 hour ferry ride and you are right above the Great Barrier Reef…

Snorkeling for the first time in my life :)
