Australia - Cairns and The Great Barier Reef

 Next stop was Cairns and I have to say it was the town I liked best. Many years ago I had a penfriend in Australia who moved to Cairns when she got married to a doctor. Unfortunately we lost contact years ago and I can't even remember her surname so was unable to look her up. I did meet her in 1970 when she was travelling round Europe and was staying in Ealing. So Jeanette if you should happen to be reading this - get in touch!
 View from hotel.

Bats flying at dusk and if you enlarge the picture you will see the crescent moon - not like ours at left or right but at the bottom - looked very strange!

Birds in the zoo which is in the dome of the Casino!

 Then a trip to The Great barrier Reef  - this is the pontoon we were on for the day.
 Fishes through the window and Roy snorkelling!

 Coral from the semi-submersible. Not very easy to get a good picture.


  1. Wow Sue! That looks fabulous! Can't get over the moon - it fell over onto its back) Hope you're having a fabulous time, sure looks like it - lots of envy here :)

  2. Just read back a few posts to see where you've been and all your lovely photo's. Fab pictures and looks like you had a dream holiday.

    I was also amazed at the moon (and the bats)!

  3. Wow, check out that moon! That is so weird!! Very cool and loving all your photo's. My husband would love this part of your trip!
