Departing Melbourne for Port Douglas, via Cairns
Saturday 28th May 2005

This is  The Gateway to Melbourne

Melbourne's down the bottom, Cairns is up the top (for those who didn't already know !)
Port Douglas is an hour's drive north of Cairns, in tropical Far North Queensland

It's a loooong way down !

Arrived in Port Douglas to a fireworks display...
didn't realise they'd be THAT excited to see us !
(Actually, it was Carnivale)

Our apartment at Saltwater

Floorplan  (ours was the one on the right in the plans)



Part of the spectacular view.
This was actually taken from the kids' balcony.
They had the Penthouse Suite

Our view was the same but we had a much smaller balcony.

That's the marina down there.
