Today was our last day in Cairns so we decided to walk around the city. Our hotel was right on the ocean but the beach was kind of weedy in that area so they have a huge pool for people to swim in. Anyone is allowed to swim there and there are plenty of restaurants nearby. We relaxed by the pool with the view of the ocean in the background. It was a very nice day so we were lucky we had such nice weather. We ate a restaurant that overlooked the ocean and then walked around a couple of the shops. We didn't have much time because our flight left in the late afternoon. We headed to the airport and traveled to Sydney. It was about a three hour flight but went by pretty quickly. When we arrived in Sydney we took the train into Circular Quay and went to our hotel which was located in 'The Rocks.' Circular Quay is right by where the Sydney Opera House is and The Rocks is a historical part of the city, which was where they first landed when they started Sydney. Our hotel had a roof top hotel so we went up there and got a view of the city at night. It was very pretty and made me excited for the rest of our trip. We planned out our week and went to bed early so we would have plenty of energy for tomorrow.
