Australian Adventures - Cairns


Another early start to the day as we headed to Cairns on a 7am flight. Cairns, pronounced Caans, is on the northeastern part of Australia. Thankfully our hotel room was available so we could unwind for a bit. We booked two days on the Great Barrier Reef and one at the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park - Culture Centre. So today is a down day.

We all tried kangaroo for lunch. It was really good! We also had prawns which were not that good. I just...I don't know. The heads throw me off.

After a nap, which we needed, off to the pool for a bit even though it rained.

For dinner, we went to the night markets. It's a court of souvenir shops that look pretty sketchy but good prices. Found this gem. I'll just put this riiiight here.

Kangaroo Scrotum pouch found in night market, Cairns, Australia

I wouldn’t be eating those prawns either, and I would have bought the kangaroo scrotum too 🤣🤣
