Last weekend, we were excited to see my sister-in-law and her kids come up for 4 days for a mini holiday. For a lot of the time, I played tour guide and got to see some sites of the Cairns area that I hadn't seen before.
The kids went swimming in the Lagoon, on the Esplanade of Cairns:
We attempted the Donna Hay Classic Baked Cheesecake (from Masterclass)... and think it turned out quite well... and the taste test wasn't a disappointment!
We drove to Paronella Park, a castle located about 1hr 20min drive from Cairns. Beautiful grounds and I can't wait to go back there with Hubby and see it lit up at night:
And on their last day here, we took the Skyrail up to Kuranda, where we saw the Barron Falls and the Butterfly Sanctuary.
It was sad to see them leave, but we have some wonderful memories to cherish until we catch up again!
