What is it with the brown coloured water!

Recently arrived back from North QLD having stayed 4 nights in Port Douglas and 7 nights in Palm Cove.

Having travelled widely throughout the world as well as within Australia I would have to say it is highly overrated.

Palm Cove in particular is simply a man made outer northern suburb of Cairns with over priced and average restaurants, furthermore whilst the palm trees and sand are nice enough the water is a brownish murky river colour, very average to say the least!

Sorry but there are far far nicer places to see!

No. I'd like the last word. :)
