Well this was my first time staying in a Backpackers and I can assure you it was one of the best times I have ever experienced!! Tropic Days knows how to make your holiday an experience to remember!! :o)

Whilst the fellas were doing the hard slog hiking on Hinchinbrook Island, I was enjoying myself in Cairns, meeting fantastic people and enjoying all the fun times here!

I certainly recommend this place to stay in Cairns.

The art work on the walls was awesome!! Everywhere you looked the walls were painted with lovely Australian art work! :o)

Theme nights were fun! :o) We had all you can eat good old Aussie Pizza and XXX beer for $10! ...... Bargain!! :o)

Another night we had a bbq with croc, emu and barra on the menu and didge lessons for all! ...That was fun :o)

And games too! :o) Some lovely people I met bought out Yatzi and I won!! Yea :o)

Well there's nothing better after a hard day sightseeing than to cool off in the pool! ....and the Backpacker had one!..... and I thought backpackers was just a dorm room!!.. This was luxury!! :o)

And not only a pool, but a lovely garden setting too! :o)

Tropic Days is a little out of town, but they have a complimentary bus service at various times of the day and they also pick you up and drop you off at the airport for no added cost. I consider that total value for money!

Well I was sad to leave this place and I know that I will be back someday. Honestly, you couldn't get better service in the local hotel accommodation! ....So, ok.....I shared a room with a few other people...and shared the amenities.....but the service and the way we were all greeted personally.....gee I don't know how they remembered our names!!...with so many people coming & going!!.... Well I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Cairns!!

This lady started working for Tropic Days when I arrived....and she obviously fitted in well :o) What a lovely lively lady she was!! :o) You need to be the right sort of person to do the job.....and she just exerberated charm and friendliness!! .....and I know she will go along way.

It was said that the staff here are like one big family and I can see why! ....No wonder people come back to this accommodation regularly!

To the staff of Tropic Days!!...You have certainly won me over! ....and I will be back!! ;o) And to whoever reads this....you need to stay here too!! :)
