    1 week 23 June stay single female please

    Once exciting young backpackers who travelled the world for 8 years, we are now settled in Cairns in a lovely green leafy suburb close to the city. We are 42 & 49 yo and we both work full time and have 2 young kids who keep us very busy. We like eating, travelling, swimming, cycling, nature and generally exploring. We are noisy, our kids are crazy and it is never a dull moment. Lots of laughing, screeching and playing hide and seek! Big non smokers, non party animals and don't mind a few drinks on the weekend but party central we are not (well not anymore! : ) solo travellers or couples welcome 🙏

    What else ...

    Cairns is one of the most popular tourist spots in australia right on the Great Barrier Reef and surrounded by stunning rainforest and scenery. It's tropical paradise! It is a very relaxed town with a huge free outdoor lagoon for swimming, lots of free stuff on all the time. We live in Brinsmead which is a green and leafy neighbourbood with some great cycle paths to waterfalls and the city all within 30-40 minutes bike ride. Bikes are provided, the bus is at the end of the street. You can cycle into city in 45 minutes.
