we are traveling to cairns jan 4-11. there is 4 ppl, late 20s.
we are spending our first week in melbourne and then flying out to cairns for our 2nd week in australia. we are a bit confused as to where to stay while in cairns. i see you can get places in the rainforest, but staying in the rainsforest, are you very secluded from restaurants? any nightlife? willl we get bored? or should we stay on beach area and vernture into the rainforest when we want. we are looking to see australia, not really looking to party, but we'd like the option there if we wanted to run and get dinner and a drink. we don't want to be stuck in our rooom in evenings. would you suggest staying in rainforest for a few days and then beach remainder. any suggestions and help would be greatly appreciated.
