Tuesday, August 18

I pretty much spent the entire day making travel plan, again.  I felt like I needed to get the hotel booked in Melbourne, since Mom and I will be there during Break (it’s spring break, but they don’t call it that).  Before I booked a hotel, I had to have an idea of what we’re doing down there.  Thank goodness for Francis in Tourism!  Mom and I have 3 full days in Melbourne so we will: 1) see the penguins on Phillip’s Island, 2) ‘hop on – hop off’ in Melbourne for heritage homes, gardens, markets, museums, and 3) we’re off to the races – horse races, as the Melbourne Cup is held in November and it sounds like it is our Kentucky Derby.

I’m still ironing out details for Cairns.  Again, I have 3 solid days and I expect to do: 1) Kuranda Railway, 2) Daintree Rainforest, & 3) The Reef with the festival filling in any gaps.  I packed tonight because I’m leaving straight from school on Thursday after classes.

Here are the links to what I plan to see:

Kuranda Railway:

Daintree National Park:

The Great Barrier Reef:

Festival of Cairns:



  1. Great, honey. Have fun in Cairns and be safe!
