Today we’re spending the day in Cairns for shopping and a general look around.
After parking the car in a city street, we walked down to the marina. Boy, there’s a few dollars worth of boat tied up down there. We walked around for ages, walked back up to the shopping area, and spent a bit of time there. We had lunch in a restaurant near the water, which was rather pleasant. Then we hunted out the railway station so we could book our tickets on the Kuranda scenic railway for the next day. We had to book from Cairns to Kuranda and return, instead of catching the train at Kuranda, as once again, most people travel up to Kuranda, and the train only leaves Cairns in the morning. So that means we have to drive to Cairns to leave the car to go back up to Kuranda on the train, then go back down to Cairns on the train so we can drive back up. Confusing.
