Pro Dive Cairns
You can't go to Australia without diving the Great Barrier Reef. Cairns is a great starting off point, but you will be sadly disappointed by the reefs in Cairns if you only go on a day trip from the local port. The reef in that area is dying and getting bleached out.
You'll be better off getting on a live aboard or taking a trip up to Port Douglass to catch a dive boat from there. Boats Available
- Tusa Dive (Cairns)
- Silverswift (Cairns)
- Silversonic (Port Douglass)
Irish pub with class
PJ's is a displaced Irish pub, laden with all sorts of Irish paraphernalia and drinks. It's more of a sit-and-drink type of place than a nightclub, though there is often live music and it can get pretty crowded. The food is good, and they get some interesting characters. There is also an outdoor seating area on the sidewalk who would rather enjoy the night air.
GREAT FOOD, GREAT PRICE
This is a great place to eat. The menu is interesting, we usually go for something with seafood.
The serves are a great size, order a couple and then share.
The sevice is usually good and the deco is relaxed, casual. You can get dressed up or go casual, whatever your heart desires.
There is a bar area where you can sit and have a drink before dinner.
This Restaurant is attached to the Bayleaf Village Resort.
Make a booking as it is very popular.
Take a trip with Uncle Brian
This is the best tour!!
If you're visiting Cairns, in Far North Queensland, Australia, you shouldn't miss a special day in the rainforest with your Uncle Brian . He takes people from all over the world to share a day of "Fun, Falls and Forest" - gently walking, talking, swimming, sliding, singing - a combination of rainforests, waterfalls, and of course fun.
He puts as much into our day together as I can, but in a relaxed, non-rushed way.
He likes to chat about the remarkable forests in an informal, friendly way - then as the day continues - an opportunity to simply relax and enjoy them.
The bonus for staying out a little later is that you spend time at the end of our day in search of the elusive little platypus.
While he would never guarantee 100% to see one - he certainly offers a very good chance of success.
Then it's over to a little volcanic crater lake after the sun has just gone - a very peaceful time of day - then a journey of fun all the way home in the dark.
You can always find him .' on the bright side of the road".
