The locals are so welcoming and friendly, as you will find out as you go to visit all the attractions Cairns has to offer, from a boat ride out to the Barrier Reef, or a trip to Kuranda up in the rain forest on the Sky Rail and then down river looking for crocodiles and ending your day in one of the many excellent restaurants, you are spoilt for choice. Far too many attractions to mention.

Great spot for backpackers and families with kids. The Lagoon swimming pool is free and safe the fishing on Cairns bay is really good. Your spoilt for choice when it comes to dining but I'd try the RSL club.

Could hardly believe my luck when they said the free introductory scuba dive was included in the package. I ended up doing a second dive for a nominal fee. The staff are very knowledgeable and helpful and have an excellent sense of humour. There's plenty to eat and drink on-board and the chef does a brilliant job at putting together lunch.
