ScouseLeeM on Tour
No Photos 8th Apr 1999 - 12th Apr 1999

The final stop of my year in Oz before flying to Fiji, and a real tourist hotspot, with lots of Ozzies from the South heading here to find some winter sun.

Went out on a boat tour of the Great Barrier Reef, but all a bit too commercialised and the reef not left as natural as further down the coast.

Nice and sunny, I spent most of my time visiting local tax offices trying to sort out rebates from my various jobs to help pay off various credit card bills run up while travelling the East Coast. By pure fluke I met up with Bob, my ex flatmate from Sydney, in the Captain Cook backpackers, and watched the greatest footballing travesty of all time as Scumchester fluked a 2-1 win in the European Cup final over Bayern Munich...

A bit bored with Cairns, booked a few days in Cape Tribulation. I'd met several other backpackers that recommended the horse ride along the beach there, so made my way up to PKs Lodge...
