Week 30 Behind the Scenes Cairns Day 6 (QLD) – Drive to Port Douglas

After all the craziness of filming for 5 days straight Tara & I said goodbye to Pete & Jess & took the scenic drive to Port Douglas. It is such an incredible drive and I would recommend it to anyone. We had a look around the town of Port Douglas then decided to head further north for a quick look at the Daintree before returning to Cairns in the evening.

Week 29 Behind the Scenes Cairns Day 5 (QLD) – Babinda Boulders

Babinda boulders has got my vote for the most magnificent place in the world. I can't go past clear, fresh, warm, crocodile free, swimmable water. I loved it so much I went back a few days later without my video camera to enjoy it for all its awesomeness. It's one of those destinations you just can't capture to show how stunning it is. I'll definitely be going back the first chance I get

Week 28 Behind the Scenes Cairns Day 4 (QLD) – Fitzroy Island

Starts with a sunrise & coffee before we board the boat to Fitzroy Island. Fitzroy is great for a day trip or an extended stay with numerous activities. We took a walk to the beautiful Nudey beach, well worth the stroll with great views, forrest & a great place for a swim. You can relax at the restaurant or go
  • snorkelling
  • glass-bottom boat
  • Aqua jets
  • kayaking
  • sailing
  • swimming
  • water trampoline
  • walks
All up a fantastic day in the sun and well worth the shot, relatively inexpensive boat trip.
Well suited for backpackers, family or any traveller.

Week 27 - Cairns: Behind the scenes Day 3 - Cairns Skyrail

We were going to spend the first half of the day on the Cairns Skyrail then do another activity in the afternoon but it wasn't to be, by the time we finished having fun on the Skyrail it was time to call it quits for the day.
The Skyrail leaves from the foothills at Caravonica and takes you up to Kuranda. There are 2 stops along the way where you can get out and have a walk around. One of the stops has some amazing view points on which you can view Barron Falls. The journey is over 7.5km with a 360 degree view as you skim the tree tops.
Definitely worth the experience.
