Dingo If you came to Cairns, You could enjoy every activities. Even if you were a stingy working-backpacker, You couldn't help spending money here. This is the Activity Kingdom. Scuba diving and cruising at Great Barrier Reef, jungle trekking into mountains, rafting in the rapid river, and sky diving and bungy jumping in the sky. At pubs in the town, tourists and native Aussies are drinking and making a lot of noise together through the night every day. If you stayed this crazy town for a month, your brain might melt away.

The Bungy
