The humidity hit us like a tidal wave the minute we stepped off the plane. It was then that I instantly knew I was going to love our time in Cairns. From rain and chilly temperatures in Melbourne to 30+ degrees tropical heat and blazing sunshine, to be able to leave my jeans at the bottom of my suitcase and start (somewhat frantically) whipping out skirts and shorts in a fit of glee was just what the doctor ordered. THIS is what holiday weather should be like!
We had only one evening and half the next day in Cairns before our drive up to Mission Beach, so spent it walking by the water, tasting some local delicacies (crocodile and kangaroo aren't bad!), enjoying some refreshing scoops of ice cream, downing cans of coconut water (my fav) like there was no tomorrow and doing the tourist-y thing, of course - incessantly photographing the scenery.
