Cairns Express...

I depart Sydney for Cairns (in north Queensland) Saturday evening and as tempting as it is to drive the 2,730 km. (32-hour) Bruce Highway to Cairns, I've opted for the Qantas 'bus' for this leg of my journey.

Australia's Princes Highway (Route 1) passes directly under one of the main taxiways of Sydney International (Kingsford Smith) Airport, making it easy for an upclose look at the new Qantas Airbus A380.

Unfortunately, the A380 is NOT pictured above, but you can take a virtual tour here: . And, if you find yourself wondering, "How much does an A380 cost?" Answer: $330 Million
