"Not for the faint hearted, things can get a bit crazy in the Gilligans bar of an evening! Jelly wrestling isn't really my thing but hay ho, you learn to accept a lot of things whilst backpacking! The entertainment on offer is great, and if your travelling alone this is a very friendly inviting atmosphere to be a part of and you can make yourself a lot of new buddy's!
utilise your time here don't get stuck in the party hole, as cairns as some great attractions on offer! Especially in the rain forest.
