Favorite thing: I am uploading some pics taken in 1981 and 1995/6 along the Esplanade of Cairns.
I have been astounded at the transformation that has taken place in the last 10 years,and I have witnessed all the changes along the Cairns Esplanade.
The real estate and housing have grown so much that the cane fields have all but disappeared to give way to views of house roofs and shopping centres.
The pics are pretty old but hopefully you will appreciate the changes.
Hope you come and visit this area soon.

Fondest memory: I love living in Cairns and when I am away I miss the casual tropical atmosphere with palm trees,rainforest and reef.
