lil j,

I can tell you that I really liked Caines (its a fun little town) and the nearby Great Barrier Reef is Amazing! I'd make sure you get up there. There's a rain forest nearby also. The Northeast is a nice part of Australia.

lil j,

A good day trip from Cairns is to get a nice old train from Cairns out to a small town called ?Kuranda?. Then come back using the cable cars that go over and through the rainforest. You can get off the cable cars at certain points and have a walk round the rainforest.

Thanx Anne! My family think i'm mad but are being supportive-i'll show them just how capable i am-i hopefully will come back full of it!

I keep buying little things and finding out more info-it makes it all seem so much more real! ;)

I know how you feel...even though I've done the backpacking a few times, I still go through the same emotions and questions in every trip. Am I forgetting something? Do I have everything I need? Should I bring this just in case? Should I bring less? Everything always has a way of working out, even if you didnt bring something that you would have needed. And you go out there and show your family what you are made of!!!
