30 September 2010

We had arrived in Cairns from Miami Florida. I must say the climate is very similar to Miami.

The town is small and relys on tourism as the base of the city's economy. Our main focus was to visit the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest and cape tribulation.

The reef was everything we had hoped for, it helped that we had a great dive instructor to educate us on...

The lake at AJ Hackett Bungy Jumping Cairns

One of the things, besides sky diving, that we always wanted to do was to do a bungy jump and when you're in Australia, Cairns is the best place to do so.

Before leaving for Australia I'd already searched for some bungy jump locations and Cairns turned out to be the only place! There are some bungy jump locations in Auckland and Queenstown, New Zealand but in Australia Cairns is the main adrenaline centre.

AJ Hackett is kind of like the founder of bungy jumping as an adrenaline sport and he was the man who has put bungy jumping on the world map. The AJ Hackett Bungy Jumping site...
