    Traveling While Black

    CAIRNS – I went whale watching and snorkeled at the Great Barrier Reef. We did a glass-floor boat tour that was amazing!

    I studied abroad in Australia for seven weeks. We stayed in Hervey Bay and flew down to Sydney and back. The most adventurous place I’ve ever been to. I even went sky diving here and although I enjoyed it, I no longer have a need to do it anywhere else. We drove from Hervey Bay to Cairns stopping along the way at the Gold Coast. Australia is absolutely beautiful and all of the people I came in contact with there were too. My classmates and I did a lot of volunteering on the aboriginal farms making paintings and soaps. It is a “must do” to connect with the natives and learn about their history. We spent a lot of time at zoos and animal sanctuaries.

    Traveling While Black

    I went to Cairns one summer when I was doing study abroad in Sydney and my only goal was to see the Great Barrier Reef. I ended up doing that and skydiving within the same weekend. (Need at least 1 day break between the two.) I also went up to Port Douglass and there was a nice viewpoint and a beach and a small farmer’s market that felt really local and friendly. I never felt out of place and everyone was quite nice to me as a solo female traveler. The esplanade was peaceful and quiet and clean. It seems to be a very relaxing city, with lots of outdoorsy things to do—not so much about a nightlife, so keep that in mind before you go.

    Traveling While Black

    I actually went by myself and let me tell you it was amazing! I was super nervous at first but everyone was super nice to me. I got into my Uber from the airport. The driver asked me to sit in the front because it was more “custom” over there. Super cool guy, gave me a little background story about Cairns. Any who I used Down Under Dive as the company for my trip. They picked me up from my hotel in the morning and took me to the pier. Once on the boat they provided light snacks and adult beverages. We went to two different spots for the dive. The instructors were so patient with me. One of them actually took me down to five by myself because I was freaking out and he wanted to make sure I had a memorable experience and had my money’s worth. The people on the cruise were mostly American tourists so I did feel a little awkward at first. Wasn’t sure who to make convo with but eventually a group of people my age invited me over to sit with them and drink together. It needed you being really chill and 3 years later I am still in contact with 2 of the girls from that group. Have fun and be safe!

    Traveling While Black

    We were blessed with a work opportunity in Australia and traveled to Cairns for a 4 day trip. Since it was winter, we were looking forwards to visiting Cairns, which is warm all year round. Our goal was to experience the Great Barrier Reef and to learn about native culture in Australia.

    Since we were only there for a short time, we booked an inexpensive hotel and stayed at the Pullman Reef Hotel and Casino. It is within walking distance to the Wharf and Marina. There are tons of shops and restaurants that specifically cater to tourists.

    We spent the first day visiting the Great Barrier Reef on a boat tour, at the time you could actually dock your boat on a piece of the dead reef and walk on it! You cannot do that anymore since the reef is endangered. We got to snorkel around the reef and see all kinds of cool sea creatures, no turtles though!

    Although Cairns is surrounded by water, you cannot swim because its full of crocodiles! The entire wharf and marina area is a couple of meters high from the actual ocean so the crocs won’t climb up! Also during a stop at a local beach, there were tons of signs with warnings about crocodiles. Our tour guide even told us not to wander into the shrubs because crocodiles are usually in them. We saw quite a few crocodiles probably 5 in total during our stay! You didn’t have to tell us twice to keep out the water.

    We took a day tour to Tjapukai Cultural Center (pronounced Jah-Koo-Pie) and participated in a few activities like boomerang throwing, painting our own boomerangs to take home as a souvenir and practicing playing the didgeridoo. Since it wasn’t busy that day, the staff gave us extra attention! It was dope!

    Most visitors to Cairns are there to see the Great Barrier reef. We advise you book your tour in advance to get the best options. We would definitely go back to visit.
