Cairns and Port Douglas: Even Better Than Expected

At around 6:45 PM yesterday I arrived back home, marking the end of my Queensland coast road trip. All in all, I covered 5,021 km, just about pipping my 2009 road trip of 4,774 kilometres. Whilst that trip took me south down to Sydney and then round to Melbourne, this road trip was all about travelling north up the Queensland coastline.

As you know, I was joined in Cairns by my family and the furthest point north in Queensland that we got to, and probably ever likely to get to, was Cape Tribulation on a rather cloudy day…

Cape Tribulation Of course, I’ve taken plenty of photographs and it will take me a good while to sort through them. As I’ve said before, in the coming months you will hear much more about this road trip.

Without doubt though, the highlight of the entire journey was our time spent in Cairns and Port Douglas. Every day offered something new, different and exciting. We loved every minute of it.

What did we do?

Well, until I do sort out all of my footage, this video will give you a pretty good idea of some of the stuff we got up to during our time in Tropical North Queensland. 

It’s not often that a holiday location exceeds your own expectations of it, but Cairns and Port Douglas definitely did that. It’s a destination we will almost certainly be returning to at some point.

      I’ve been called many things in my lifetime, but I can assure you, I’ve never been called a ‘gift to humanity’. Thank you 🙂
