Maria’s new Aussie hat makes its debut!

Another beautiful day in paradise and we are right in the middle of winter. Just five minutes away from where we live we have got some magnificent beaches, as you can see in the photo. They are called the NORTHERN BEACHES, and this one where we came to have breakfast and read the paper is called HOLLOWAY’S BEACH. The photo was taken at 7.30am, but who wants to stay in bed in such a glorious Saturday morning?????? Well, in fact, I would have loved sleeping in a bit longer, but that’s another story. So we got up, got our gear ready and made it to the beach.

I finally wore the hat Steve bought me a few days ago. Everybody, and when I say everybody I mean every single person in this part of the world, wears a hat. It is a very Aussie tradition and since I’m becoming an Aussie…

We’re still in the middle of our marketing campaign to let everybody know we are here. And we are not doing too bad at all. In fact, we are doing a very good job promoting CAIRNS and Tropical North Queensland to everybody. We still go down to the city centre every day to hand out our beautiful postcards. By they way, it seems like none of you is interested in having a postcard sent from Australia. They look beautiful in the picture and they are even more stunning “live”. Anybody??????

Double Island, Barron Falls, and a Northern Outback road. Three of the many faces of Tropical North Queensland.Wednesday and Thursday were great days for our business. We had lots of new people, even some companies we hadn’t contacted beforehand, ordering UPGRADED LISTINGS in our website. Also we have been crawling slowly on Google ranks and now CAIRNS UNLIMITED is within the first five websites in many specific searches. We are becoming popular very fast, although we are also working hard to get there. But it doesn’t seem so hard when you can wear THONGS all year round, does it?. Long gone are the days when I had to wear winter suits and high heel boots to go to work…

And last night we decided to celebrate it going out for dinner to a Mexican restaurant in Cairns. We checked our DINING page and our CAIRNS WEEKLY ENTERTAINMENT GUIDE before going out and we were tempted by some Mexican food. The food itself was amazing but the servings were a bit too small. In general, the restaurant was a bit overpriced. You don’t have to worry, the restaurant won’t make it to our dining page. Why? Because we are committed to our readers and if something is not good enough for ourselves, then it is not good enough for our readers. Fair dinkum! But following the Mexican night, we went for a drink to a Mexican bar, where there was a pre party to the Kuranda Roots, the new reggae festival in Tropical North Queensland. Are you curious about it? Read more in our KURANDA page and why don’t you make it to Kuranda for the next festival? Next one is in September, called Reggaetown. What are you waiting for? Drop us an email letting us know what you need for your next holiday in Tropical North Queenland, and pack your suitcase or backpack. We look forward to say G’day to you.

Anyway, tomorrow will be another day and we will come back to let you know what and how we are doing. Stay tuned!!!
