For years I've heard people say "Cairns is boring; there's no beach, all that's there is mudflats." The messgae was that Cairns is a great place to arrive by plane and get out of, or from which to arrange reef and rainforest trips. Well, the latter part is true, but the movers and shakers of Cairns have been listening to what was said and decided to do something to shake up Cairns' image. We'll go there next!
But first, here's the mudflats as you see them right at the main waterfront of Cairns.
