Cairns, August 17-20

Cairns (pronounced "cans") a city in north Queensland where the rainforest meets the sea! It is also a huge hub for easy access to the Great Barrier Reef. The weather was amazing...it is winter here "Down Unda" but it was over 80 degrees every day we were there. My friends and I explored a secluded beach, went on a day trip to the reef, chased waterfalls (and Cassowaries—an almost extinct really really really large and scary bird), and took the Kuranda Sky Rail over the rainforest! It was a jam-packed weekend, but it was great! Here are a few pics that summarize our weekend.
