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.

The port here has nice places to eat on the Boardwalk, about a mile to the lagoon. Easy walk to the reefs boats. Right off the ship is Hemmingways Brewery...very nice place. Don't miss the reef.

Cairns itself was quite a nice city. The cbd area was clean and modern looking with many shops, parkland and an attractive boardwalk. The excursion which included a trip out to the Great Barrier reef for snorkelling with lunch included was definitely a highlight and worth the money. The only negative was that the part of the reef that we saw was quite devoid of colour.
