Daintree Rainforest Day Tour

On Wednesday I went for a day tour of a small part of the Daintree Rainforest in Queensland with tour company Billy Tea Tours. The day started with me getting picked up at 7am in Cairns and then driving north to pick up the rest of the tour group, a mix of nationalities and ages. 591 more words

Toad of Toad Hall

Ok, so not everyone’s cup-of-tea!

Cane toads have been considered a blight to our ecology for decades. They have years to

The Australian Mega Road Trip, Part 4: Cairns and Cape York Peninsula

Okay, so maybe calling this part ‘Cape York Peninsula’ is a bit much since the Cape York Peninsula encompasses a massive part of north eastern Australia but the bitumen road stops just after a place called Cape Tribulation, beyond this point is gravel road which I believe isn’t too bad, however once you pass Cooktown which is about 100km from Cape Tribulation the road worsens and a 4×4 vehicle is essential, especially with the wet season not far away.  2,084 more words

Cairns / Port Douglas, QLD

One of my favourite flights has to be landing in Cairns – you get some fantastic views of the Great Barrier Reef out at sea and then see the contrasting landscape of Australia with the floodplains overshadowed by the rainforest mountains. 405 more words
