Cairns - More Food and Markets

One thing I haven't mentioned previously is that a few months ago I became a member of Accor Advantage Plus for an annual fee of under $300. As a member I receive a free nights' accommodation at any Accor resort in Australia, Asia or the Pacific (this more than pays for the annual fee). In addition, I can access red hot deals on the website, so all the accommodation on this trip at Ibis, All Seasons, Novotel and Mercure hotels has been booked this way. But I think the best part of all is that two people can dine for the price of one. For example at the Novotel in Cairns we had a beautiful buffet of seafood, steaks, salads, chicken and desert for $49.00 for two, or $24.50 each:

On another night, we went to the Night Markets which are open 7 days a week:

There are a lot of stalls selling all sorts of Australiana:

Even didgeridoos:


And a big plate of Asian food is only around $12.00:
