A hopefully handy guide…
Almost certainly the best thing to do in Cairns itself, the Flecker Botanic Gardens are a very pleasant place to wander around for free.
The clear highlight was the freshwater lake and Chinese friendship garden at sunset. Worth a few mosquito bites for some lovely photographs.
I also went for the first of many walks along boardwalk through rainforest.
Though I was more interested in the wonderfully reflective visitor centre.
Beautiful! Lovely reflections in the water. How wonderful the way the building disappears in its surroundings. 😊
