CHEAP TICKETS ~ A QUICK GETAWAY ~ STEAMING HOT WEATHER

(SOUNDS LIKE THE PERFECT HOLIDAY DESTINATION)

FITZROY ISLAND

November 2016, my best friend (Simone) and I decided to book a trip away to the beautiful city of Cairns in Queensland.

Let me start off by saying, Cairns is a city filled with stunning views, delicious restaurants/cafes and friendly people. If a city can have all of these great qualities why wouldn’t you want to visit it?

Whilst saying in Cairns, we experienced many adventures that consisted of day trips to the islands.  A very popular beach destination that we took a ferry across too, is called Nudie Beach – Fitzroy Island.

My only advice to you is too make sure you put on shoes when your walking to and from the beach, Simone had no shoes on and she was about to cry from so much pain. So don’t forget your flip flops.

Also, it is recommended to wear swim suits when your on the beach as Jellyfish are swimming around. The last thing you want is to be carried out by a helicopter!!

CAIRNS ESPLANADE SWIMMING LAGOON

A popular  destination to visit whilst in Cairns, is the Cairns Esplanade Swimming Lagoon.  In other words this popular swimming lagoon is also known as a man made pool. It’s also a great way to go for a brisk walk and cool yourself down. The lagoon is filled with sand, seats and plenty of grass area. A MUST SEE SPOT IN CAIRNS.

FISH SPA

Okay guys, you probably  are all thinking “why would she be doing a fish spa in cairns?”. To be honest with you all, Simone and I were exploring the streets of  Cairns before  having dinner and we came across this amazing fish spa and we looked at each other and thought “WE HAVE TO DO THIS”!

A fish spa is basically where you put your feet in a tank containing fish. The fish nibble and get rid of all your dry and dead skin.

If you haven’t been to a fish spa before, be aware you will be in absolute hysterics, especially if you are ticklish. Other then that you will have a ball and by the end of your treatment your feet will feel fresh and you will be ready to continue your adventures of Cairns.

OVERALL EXPERIENCE

If you are overseas & travelling to Australia for a holiday or even if you are from Australia, I definitely think you should invest in a getaway holiday to Cairns.

Be aware though Cairns itself doesn’t have any natural beaches. Therefore, If you wanting to explore and visit the beaches and islands such as Nudie Beach you will need to catch a ferry over to your destinations.

Overall, the city has a relaxing atmosphere and the service you receive at the restaurants is wonderful. The people are laid back and you definitely feel like your on a exotic holiday away in this beautiful city of Cairns.

  1. Cairns is one of my recommendations for any overseas visitor to Australia … so much to do on day trips out of the city ….mths rainforest or the Great Barrier Reef. He other recommendations are Alice Springs for a taste of the Outback, again there are great day trips radiating out of The Alice … Kings Canyon, Uluru for instance. The third recommendation would be Sydney or Melbourne to get a taste of the urban buzz

  2. Visited Cairns back in 2003 …. And LOVED it! Beautiful gateway to the rainforest & the reef. We too did Fitzroy Island, a day-long kayak trip around the island. Great, great, great destination!!!
