Day 1, 2 and 3: The flight and first day in Cairns
Our trip to Cairns went without a hitch. We were up for well over 40 hours straight, about 20 of those hours were in the air, with almost an equal amount of time in airports with some very long layovers.
We started out with a visit to Hartley’s. Besides crocodiles, we got up close and personal with Koalas and Kangaroos.
From there we headed to lovely Port Douglas for lunch. The vegetation all around this entire area is so lush with a great variety of beautiful palms. Many species of birds are plentiful as well.
