There are lots of things to do in Cairns but on our last day I chose to do nothing. It was time for a rest because the humidity is very tiring. I did a bit of shopping and took snaps of the flying foxes that nest in the trees outside the hotel.
Very strange and noisy creatures but apparently they are protected here.
I felt better for the rest and today we flew to Sydney. This is a really exciting city! One can feel the buzz immediately. We arrived about 5 p.m. and after checking in and unpacking we went down to the Harbourside for a meal. Lots of restaurants, music and people. A bit too much rain as wll but that may go away by tomorrow.
Returning to the hotel, a helpful Concierge found two only tickets available at the Opera House for the opening night of La Traviata. One of the other ladies grabbed one and I have the other!
