Today I’m coming back to Cairns. After 2 weeks riding around I’m going to get my tax file number and find a work somewhere. Maybe I will come back later to Mareeba because the office was close yesterday and it the same today. Right we are Sunday…
There is no so many roads going up the table lands and this one is quite full. Fortunately it’s smooth and large and finally going a bit downhill.
I am on my way to Kuranda but this sign looks good, let’s have a look to the market.
Oh it’s smaller than I expected. No worries ;-) there is certainly good people here :-)
This fruit is a “Sour soap” a name like this. It taste between coconut and melon. It’s nice. I bought this one but it’s not ready to eat yet.
I was taking the previews picture when a woman came to me and show me this fruit. It’s the same family but much bigger!
That’s the tree. I don’t remember the name… no brain.
I’m know in Kuranda. This place is crowded by tourist but as every time I’m good to push people away my pictures :-)
A tour to the toilets. No more details of course but what is that sign? Are they serious? People do that? Oh!
This place is a big market. A big market for tourist!
I’m in Frejus :-)
It’s nice :-)
Trust me it’s full of tourist but my camera does not like them.
There is different style of smalls shops : Asian, Spanish, skateboard, tatoo, craouch :-) it’s cool here.
I arrived at one end. Let’s cone back this way.
Hammock shop! Cool:-) if I break my tent, I hesitated to bya hammock next time.
Marie Viat you would love this place. Carlos, you would hate this place haha. Or don’t go with Marie lol ;-)
Spanish restaurant on the left side. I’ve passed front of music shop as well. There is everything here.
A museum about aboriginal art.
The famous dotted style.
I’m going now to visit Barron falls but looks like it’s a hilly road. Rah, I don’t mind.
And it was! But I’m almost arrived.
Aaah. I understand now. I thought that right after Mareeba I will go downhill but no no no! The most difficult part is coming.
Barron falls. In winter, dry season there is no so much water. But in summer this place is certainly very noisy.
This is now.
This panel explains how the Kuranda range appeared (a long time ago).
A path is continuing towards the Kuranda rail way station. There is an old stylish train coming from somewhere and going to Cairns I think. Maybe I will have the chance to see it.
This path is passing throught the rain forest.
This is the Barron falls with a better view than before.
Wide view. I should come back during the wet season to sea the difference.
Barron gorge hydro.
The train station is empty. I think I won’t see the train today. Let’s come back.
I’ve left Kuranda and i’m onto a bridge crossing the Barron river.
Hey, this is Cairns again :-) After 2 weeks away, cool :-)
The weather is not the best but the view is still good.
Close close up. Oh, actuality. Cairns is behind the hill on the right hand side. In the center there is the airport.
Onto the cook high way again.
And the barron river again :-)
Welcome to Cairns. This is the esplanade.
And this cycle way follows the a until the city centre. Nice :-)
I’ve turned around this afternoon. Going to the shop and I found a night market. So many useless things to buy here. But I found something interesting : a hammock shop :-) Maybe I will come back here when my tent will be dead.
I finish this long day buy a pause around the “lagoon”.
With a tasty kebab :-) I don’t yet where I will sleep tonight but I will find a good spot as every time. No worries ;-) good night!
