We had a family holiday in Cairns and hired a car through Gem Rent-a-Car. Whilst the car was adequate the customer service displayed by this company was not. The initial quote was for a large car but we were given a medium car without any prior communication and then charged at the large car price. Contacting the owner by phone was difficult as he was always 'on the road with a client' and he requested that emails be sent. Emails were sent as per his direction with no responses for days. I am still awaiting a CORRECT refund! I found this to be a poorly organised company with seemingly little administrative support.Deborah Lambert
Flames of the Forest
February 25, 2013
I was treated to a most beautiful evening at Flames under the forest whilst on holidays in Cairns with my boyfriend in January and we absolutely loved it. The sounds and smells of the forest were just so unbelievably different to anything else we have ever experienced and the food and service was excellent. He just recently asked me to be his wife and of course I said yes so we will be looking at Flames for our wedding venue next year as a definate. W3e want to show our family and friends what we discovered not only at flames but also Port Douglas. If you are going to Cairns make sure you make a booking as they get very bust and do not operate every evening.Rebecca Thurston

We were looking for an authentic indiginous experience whilst in Cairns and we are so happy this was recommended to us. We had a great time and thank you for a great night.Saachi James Mason
The vegetation on the mountain is heavy, consisting mainly of Australian scrub. Rocks feature heavily, so if it is raining you'll need to be careful not to slip. Take plenty of water with you and make sure to apply sunscreen regularly. The scenery from the top of the pyramid is spectacular and takes in 360-degree views – it makes the climb worth all the effort.
Every year in August, a “Pyramid Race” takes place where hundreds of competitors run up the hill and back again. This is reserved for masochistically fit people who like pain, but if you think you might like to give it a go there is $5000 up for grabs.
It has been argued that the most difficult part of hiking Walsh's Pyramid is reaching the bottom of the mountain by car. It's not that the road is in poor condition; it's just that it's difficult to find. Here are some directions to help.
Please be aware the base of the mountain is private property. Park your car in a discreet location that doesn't block the dirt road used by the cane farmer. From Cairns, drive south past the small town of Gordonvale. This takes just under 25 minutes. 800 metres south of the Mulgrave River on the Bruce Highway you'll see a small road on the right called Moss Rd.
Follow this road for approximately 100 meters, and you'll find a narrow gravel track heading right. This is marked by a red rectangle.
Continue along this track, which borders a cane field, for approximately 100 metres.
Soon you'll be at the parking area, and the path begins at this point.
Enjoy your hike!
