The best ribs in Cairns!

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

It’s not a competition, folks, unless there is more than one contender. And there’s not. If you’ve got a hankering for the best ribs in Cairns you just need to head down to Waterbar and Grill at the Pier.


If my body could handle the calories, I would eat there every day of the year. And I reckon the little fella would be happy to join me…

Ribs for our little carnivore!!

Saturday, November 30th, 2013

We had promised Nico a special treat for being such a terrific little boy. Ever since Mum gave him a ham bone to chew on from her famous homemade pea’n'ham soup, he loves the opportunity to chew meat from a bone. His caveman heritage I guess :)

So what better to spoil a three year old boy (and what better excuse for his Dad to have a good ol’ pig out!!) than to take him to Cairns’ best place for ribs.

¬†Waterbar and Grill is renowned in the Cairns dining scene as THE place in town to eat meat. And we can see why…

Breakfast with the beasts

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Every morning is a bit beastly in our house, but this was something out of the ordinary. As soon as I finished my early morning underwater camera deliveries, I raced home and picked up Maria and Nico for a breakfast to remember. Just past Kuranda, you will find Shambala Animal Kingdom (formerly known as Cairns Wildlife Safari Reserve) where visitors can dine on a buffet breakfast while watching the king of the jungle enjoy his own tasty tucker. Nicholas unfortunately discovered chocolate flavoured breakfast cereal.

The lions weren’t the only attraction; there were tigers, monkeys, hippos, a rhino. But there’s only one king of the jungle isn’t there?
