Unfortunately our ship tendered at Yorkies Knob this time which means a 25 minute ride into Cairns. Usually we can tie up Quayside at Cairns but they are modernising everything up there and it wasn’t possible this time. This is a great city to visit and there is lots to do. There are great places to visit on the Esplanade and on the main street. There is a large casino and a visit to Cairns wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the barrier reef hotel which is opposite the casino.
