Road Trip Far North Queensland
Went to the Cairns Tropical Zoo on a cooler day and had a great day out. Stayed with family at Trinity Beach, swam in their pool most days, went sight seeing and visited other family members who have move to Cairns, Atherton. Great Christmas Day and New Years Eve. Next year we have decided Christmas will be in Toowoomba.
This beautiful Cassowary was in the Cairns Tropical Zoo which we were lucky enough to hand feed under the watchful eye of her carer. We of course gave her a name, what else but Cassie. We were also extremely lucky to see a Cassowary in the wild whilst driving though Mission Beach. Could not manage to get a photo as there was traffic behind us at the time, did not want to scare the bird.
We also went up to Kuranda on the Tablelands, the Kuranda Market and Sky rail and Barron Falls.The town of Atherton, Malanda, Yungaburra Millaa Millaa.
Most importantly of all is we all had a GREAT TIME.
