CAIRNS CENTRALThe roof in the centre court of Cairns Central leaks. It has leaked for years. It has leaked thru at least two changes of owners. The leak continues to get worse. As you can see. The leak shown is at the bottom of the escalator. As you can see. Apparently customer safety is much less important than the massive profits this centre generates for the landlord.

AND DISPLAY TO POTENTIAL TRAVELLERS. LIKELY SIMILAR INSIDE. YUCK.
We've gotten several complaints about the continuing problems at the Cairns Airport. We've done stories about this soulless travel factory. Huge numbers of drivers still can't find the hidden entrance to the domestic terminal (which has the personality and class of a Dunder Mifflin paper factory). Parking is grossly overpriced, and there is still no covered walkway from baggage claim to the pick-up area.
But one of the more stupid airport follies was the idiots that striped the parking lots, leaving unusable-sized spaces at the end of every row. Leave it to lazy Cairns hillbillies to find a way to make these spots usable. Look closely and you'll see cars parked on the berms in every row!
