Write A Port Tip

Once again, no harbour at Yorkey;s Knob so ships lifeboats tender you ashore. Situated approx thirty minutes outside Cairns, you will need to take the coach into town. Nothing much to see at the Knob just a small restaurant and bar. We took a tour on a period train to Kuranda, terrific views on the two hour journey. Recommended as an alternative to the Great Barrier reef. In the afternoon we visited Cairns. A pleasant, if sticky, one horse town with lovely outside pools and promenades. Kind of how I imagined it would be.

Our excursion took us straight from the cruise ship to reef. The great barrier reek trip was expensive, not worth the cost, late in pick-up and drop off. Toilets broke and smelled horrible on ride.
