Location: Cairns

We had a free day today, so several people slept in. The people who were awake for breakfast went to the beach after breakfast. We hung out on the beach all morning until lunch. After lunch, everyone finished packing and said good-bye to the Bat House. We were sad to leave but excited for the next part of our Australian adventure. We boarded a bus, and after a very long and windy ride, we arrived in Cairns. At the motel, we got situated in our rooms before leaving for dinner in town. We walked to the Night Market and got Chinese food from the Night Market. Then we were allowed an hour and a half of shopping in the market. After the Night Market, we caught a taxi back to the motel. We saw fireworks from the local fair as we were driving by. Back at the motel, we settled in for the night.
