CAIRNS, Queensland — Performer Belladonna's upcoming family vacation in Cairns has gotten the attention of mainstream press.

The Cairns Post told of Belladonna's planned trip to the area to visit the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree rainforest along with her July 28 meet-and-greet appearance at Erotica, a local adult store.

Cairns is on the east coast of Australia, about 1,700 miles north of Sydney. It is located at the center of the Great Barrier Reef, and is a major tourist destination.

"I think a lot of people will come along for the chance to have a photo taken with her and to see a real porn star in the flesh," Erotica's manager told the Cairns Post. "They’ll be able to have a few words with her and then move on — a bit like the Queen, except she’s the Queen of Porn."

Belladonna will be in Australia to attend Sexpo in Sydney. Sexpo is a multi-day "health, sexuality and lifestyle expo" that is held in various Australian cities annually. It started in Melbourne in 1996 and also has been held in Brisbane, Perth, Sydney and Adelaide. The Sydney event will be held July 24-27.
