From what I've gathered backpacking in SA, Cairns is backpacker central in Oz and a lot of people come through Thailand on their way so are at least aware of poi. It might be worth booking a couple of nights in a hostel and lighting up to see if anyone joins/aproaches you.

Also I think I'll be heading upo there in the next 2 months, if you're interested pm me biggrin

Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand and I can beat the world into submission.

Hi there, when I was there there was a guy called John who sold poi and suchlike in the central square of the town during most days.

He organised fire gatherings on a Friday night out at lake placid and there were loads of people who went - along with drummers, musicians, didg players etc.

However, that was nearly three years ago now... so things may have changed!

Good luck biggrin

Yeah I know Jon, he doesn't run that no more. I don't even think he's in Cairns anymore.

The Esplanade there, is that near the pier area, with the large water area, etc? Something by the name of Fire By the Sea... confused



Where abouts do the spinners go exactly in Cairns (with regards to this Fire By The Sea), and can any other people join in? (Wasnt too sure if it was a performance group, or a pyromeet)



Next time Im up at Cairns, I wanna make sure I check it out biggrin

Edit:

Found this -
 Written by: Cairns Esplanade - Cairns Connect*

Come along on Friday night to see Fire By The Seawatch the fire dancers perform between roughly 8.00 pm and 9.30 pm. Its spectacular! You will find them on the sand beach off the boardwalk at the end of Florence Street right opposite Villa Romana.







... So are other pyrospinners allowed to join in? confused

Wow, I just saw this and it was posted two years ago!

Jon taught you to spin! Mad!

Clare, I will PM you Jon's contact details. I am in touch with him, and indeed he is in Kuranda. Probably coming down to Woodford at the end of the year, with Dan and Brad too.
