Cairns has been very much cloudier and cooler than we expected, with frequent short showers, so we were not very confident of actually being able to see the eclipse.
But, as you may have gathered from the title of this entry, we were indeed successful! Fortunately, our trip to Cairns was booked with a specialist agency who also researched where to go for the clearest skies and the best views for various weather conditions. They deliberated, and then took us by coach (at 2 am) well into the hills inland, where the skies were very clear and from where we had a most beautiful view of the eclipse.
