Travel: 2 days in Cairns


On 3rd day we flight to Cairns, in the region of far north queensland, Australia. The city is in close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef.

On our arrival day, we visited a mini rain forest

it was my second time flying on a small jet, still excited about the experience, specially because I’ve never experienced departure/arrival on water!
