A week in tropical Cairns

A January 2005 trip to Cairns by jimmyOne

Quote: I flew into Cairns from Sydney and met up with some friends who are staying here. I spent a few days enjoying the city, the Atherton Tablelands (amazing), and the Barrier Reef (very amazing), then headed south.

Inn the City


The hostel is run by a friendly and helpful staff and has clean rooms, all with air-conditioning, fridges, and TVs. There is a pool with a waterfall and a barbeque. Free breakfast is provided, and a meal ticket is provided each night, which gives you a free meal at a restaurant (small, but you can upgrade to a proper meal for about $5). The building quality of the hostel is a bit suspect sometimes, but it's still a great place.
