Tourist in Australia - Day 10
Saturday, October 29, 2016
Up early at 5:30. We had a great breakfast to get us through a busy day. Dianne surprised me with these special embroidered coasters of 5 states with their lovely natural flowers. She also included Tasmania. I love them! There was a duplicate copy of New South Wales.
A taxi picked us up to take us to the airport for our flight to Cairns. We hugged her goodbye. This was almost the end of family time (later spent time with Marg’s daughter, Tracy, in Canberra). We started the tourist aspect of our visit to Australia.
We landed and we arrived at our hotel early in which we checked in our luggage only. We found a nice place for lunch and walked around the quaint tourist harbor of Cairns.
The next two days were full with our time exploring the Great Barrier Reef and visiting the Tjapukui Aboriginal tribe with the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway to Kuranda.
