Further to your recent e-mail please accept my apologies for the delay in responding. With regard to our holiday we had a fantastic time whilst we were in AUSTRALIA and in particular during our stay in Cairns. Our accommodation was ideal for our needs, basically a clean, tidy and adequately furnished apartment within easy reach of the centre of Cairns. The on site managers were very good to us they were helpful and informative giving us valuable advice on things like which trips to go and where to go to for the best deal on car hire. Although this accommodation might not suit the most discerning type of holiday makers (there were number of very nice but expensive hotels if that is what someone would prefer) it was certainly good value for money, was ideal for our needsand I would certainly recommend it to visitors an limited budget and especially families with children. The outdoor pool was super our children went in everyday to cool down. We went on a full day Barrier Reef trip to Moore Cay where we snorkled, and took a trip on both a glass bottomed boat and a semi-submersible boat. Other trips we went on whilst in Cairns were to Kuranda village (via the Scenic Railway from Fresh Water returning on The Sky Rail), Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge, The Table Lands and Marreeba over the other side of the mountains at the back of Cairns. All of these were great and we would recommend them to any one thinking of visiting Cairns for a holiday.
