Port Douglas

We moved on from Cairns to Port Douglas.  I wasn't sure what to expect.  It's well known as a tourist destination with that much photographed stretch of sand where the rainforest meets the reef.

I found it to be modern, low rise, not overly busy and really quite pleasant in an up-market kind of way.


  1. Ah! this is one of my most favourite holiday destinations ..... I've stood right there looking out along Four Mile Beach.

    1. Yeh I reckon I would not mind going back there for a longer holiday .... but then again I am always itching to see new places.

  2. It reminded me a little of Noosa but not quite so over the top touristy. I would have liked to stay there longer.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
