Hi all or should i say Gday!
Well, we've been through the desert to Alice Springs and Ayers Rock and are now in sunny Cairns. Both places AMAZING although it was cloudy and did rain a little at Ayers rock which was a little unexpected!!!
Cairns is a little bigger than i remember from our last visit but the boat trip out on the outer Barrier reef was even better! Fish were unbelievable and even saw some turtles! WOW What an expereince.
So, found out everywhere closes around 10pm in Perth on a Sunday!

Went to "the Dome" t...

Our rep seems nice enough (Londoner) but was trying to make everyone do the excursions and seemed to go on and on and on! We just booked one trip but may also do the outback bbq- that sounds like fun.
Today was an inc...
Well, that wasnt bad journey really. a few hiccups on the way ( no boarding pass and being scanned for explosives in Manchester airport!!!) but apart from that all the flights were on time and the tour company rep was on our flight so everything ran pretty smoothly. Long flight but itll be longer on the way home as we'll fly back from Melbourne. Cant fault the flight attendants they were all blokes and couldnt do enough for us. By the time we we...
