For those who woke up early enough to eat breakfast and pack long before our bus was due, a trip to St. Mary’s Cathedral was an added bonus:
Today was a laid-back, relaxing morning in Sydney as we left the hotel relatively late to catch our flight to Cairns (around noon). Upon arrival in Cairns, we checked into our hotel (Ibis) and got to work immediately exploring the town... we walked down to the waterfront to visit the “Lagoon.” It is an ocean-water swimming spot tucked up safely away from the croc-ruled marshy but beautiful beaches!
All-in-all, it was a good travel-day. And boy were we excited for the upcoming Day 10 - snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef!
