Located between the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn in northeast Australia, Cairns is a tropical paradise. The weather is warm all year and people can participate in a variety of activities, both on the Great Barrier Reef and in the tropical rain forests surrounding the area.

It amazed me to see many of my houseplants, some of which struggle to live in the temperate climate of Birmingham, growing wild in the tropical atmostphere. This is truly a place to remember.
