Sports Events

We're in the Cairns region from 03/01 to 09/01.

Are there any professional sporting events during our stay (Cricket/Aussie Football/Rugby etc)?

Laughingbear bloke,

January is usually our hottest month, and try as we do, we can't seem to get sports people interested in running around for the amusement of others during that month (& February). Most are content to sit around keeping the fluids up to par.

I'm assuming you have'nt been to Cairns before, but nobody runs around more than they have to during summer here, so you might have to confine yourself to the old indoor sports.

I thought this is why most people go on holiday anyway...a change of scenery/climate and a renewed vigour and all that.

Plenty to do without having to resort to sitting/watching stuff you can see in airconditioned comfort on TV anyway...if you really felt that you had to watch sport.

Mate, kick back, enjoy the (very tropical) far north laid-back lifestyle, and have a good holiday.

Cheers,

Rick

Cheers for that Rick, and if you ever come to the north of England, i'll let you know you'll need to bring a 'brolly!!

Laughingbear mate,

Was in Durham last Xmas, and did'nt really need a brolly....however another 12 layers of clobber would have come in handy. France & N.Y. were another story...4c below & 2c below when we lobbed, so we're heading back there next January...to compete in some indoor sports.

You may need to bring your brolly with you, however, as the "wet" will soon be upon us here.

Cheers,

Rick,

Cairns
