Decent selection of hotels in the area? Decent meaning a wide range of accomodations?

THe little girl singing at 7:50 in part 1.

Who is she ? A local uke player? She is too cute and she is going to be a ukulele powerhouse.

And what song is she singing? Great performance, but trying to figure it out is driving me nuts!

That is Hannah Walker playing her original song, "When I was Seven"

Hannah is a local girl. The song is actually called, "Since I was Seven"

The track has been recorded here for a local compilation album to be given to every baby born this year and features a solo by Matt!

Chords are:

verse: C | G | F | G
in between bit: C | F | G | G

In relation to accommodation, there's an abundance here as Cairns is a tourism orientated town. Lots of things to do while you're here!
