Christmas, 2003
Cairns, Far North Queensland

The Great Barrier Reef was barely visible from topside ...
but the underwater views were spectacular!

Snorkel enthusiasts were advised to suit up in full body lycra due to the large number of jellyfish in the water.
An antique train ride up into the rain forest
and a skyrail back down over the canopy.
Pamagirri Dancers performed
and I got to pet a koala.
A kangaroo checks on the joey inside her pouch, but they could retreat behind the fence when they got tired of the tourists.
