If you’ve been wondering what the hell’s going on in the world of Cairns Unlimited, so have we!!!
I swear I have never been so busy in my life. Since our last blog entry, we have bought a new car (well, second hand, but new to us!), moved into a new home on Cairns NORTHERN BEACHES, and are just about to set off on a two week road trip around the NORTHERN OUTBACK. You can probably imagine that a 3000 kilometre road trip through the Australian outback has taken a certain degree of planning and preparation, and that’s the best excuse I’ve got for our recent silence. If you’re interested to see where it is we’re heading, click on the map below to open an interactive map of the Northern Outback.
We will probably drive west for about five days to visit NORMANTON and KARUMBA; BURKETOWN also if our van is feeling up to the drive. Then, we’ll turn south to CLONCURRY - the hottest place in Australia - and check out one of Australia’s most important mining towns, MOUNT ISA, while we’re there. Then, it’s back to the coast via the OVERLANDER’S WAY - another four or five days - ending up at TOWNSVILLE, before we wind our way north again, through the CASSOWARY COAST. It will be great to get away, after the last three months (and a considerable amount of time before that!) almost chained to the computer. But it will be great to get home, as well, to our new townhouse on the beach. Ah, life in Tropical North Queensland… beautiful one day, perfect the next! Did someone already say that?
By the way, Maria was looking for cheap flights on the internet recently; for ourselves to visit South Queensland at Christmas, but also in case some of her friends are planning to visit… now that we have a townhouse with a swimming pool… right on the beach! Well, guess where she found the cheapest flight? Right here on Cairns Unlimited!! If you’re looking for a cheap flight from almost anywhere in the world to almost anywhere in the world, you won’t do better than use our FLIGHT FINDER, which allows you to compare all the major discounters by entering your details just once.
