Cairns, a little city tour


Recommended Posts

As I had a helicopter at hand from my last flight, I just made a little detour southwards of the airport. Starting at the parking lots and rental car stations...

... towards the harbour...

... and to the lagoon, which serves as a croc- & yellyfish-free swimming ground.

And nature´s beauty is still there.

Nice shots Gerold, the majority of my Australia flights in P3D were either in or out of Cairns

Orbx team if you are listening , Cairns would be a massive hit along side the new World Update for OZ next month

 

Completely agree, I love flying round Oz and there's a few bigger airports we still need Orbx (or partner) renditions of

Great stuff out of Cairns Gerold. That surely is one of my favorite Orbx locations and I would love to see more of it for MSFS. You got me all excited to see a pic of crocs in the water with the swimmers, but now I feel disappointed :D

Thank you John. I used a very expensive MSFS version, but needed no internet connection!

Thanks Joe, Cairns IS a very nice base for virtual (and, lesser used) real travels around the northeast.

Great comparison shots, as always Gerold! The good thing is, although we still cannot travel there, we luckily have our memories and photos/videos :)

Oh yes bernd, lots of travels on the memory lane... and I hope we can get back to dreaming of future travels, too.

Super shot Gerold.  Specially like that third one look like a real photo.

I did my very best, John, and waited really long until the sim had loaded all fine details into pictures 3 and 5.

I tried to find a good pic of crocs in the water with the swimmers, but for some reason either the water was red or I saw only the crocs. There may be a reason why they put these signs here...

Splendid mixture of shots Gerold! :)  Great flotation devices in that last shot. :D

Thank you Adam. These are the details we all like in the scenery packages.

For sure, Landon... Though: In this case also the potential penalties are powerful enough to make most people recognize the signs 8):D!
