Four Days in Cairns – Tropical North Queensland

I have just spent the last four days on holiday in Cairns and the surrounding area.

During this time I saw, did, and ate:

  • Ate Crocodile, Emu, and Kangaroo
  • Ate Crocodile Curry
  • Went on the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway over the Barron Gorge to Kuranda
  • Bought Mango wine
  • Went on the Kuranda Scenic Railway back down the Barron Gorge
  • Climbed the Red and Blue Arrow Circuits behind Cairns and saw a wild Wallaby
  • Went on On The Wallaby tour into the Tablelands visiting a number of waterfalls, cycling about 15km and canoeing down a river where we saw Spiders, a Tree Kangaroo, Platypus, Turtles, and a whole lot of other cool wildlife.
  • Went hunting through a riverbed to find rocks that can be used for face painting.

Right now I am very tired to go into anymore details about the trip. However pictures speak a 1,000 words, so here are 21 photos to speak 21,000 words. (Click on a photo to see a larger version).
