We are now settled into a Caravan park in Cairns and loving the warm winter tropical weather at about 29 degC (84.2 deg F) during the day and 20 degC (68deg F) at night.
The mileage from Launceston to Cairns is about 3,500 km ( 2,174.799 miles) give or take a few, depends which route ones comes.
A photo of Cardwell which is not that far below Cairns. We stayed there for two nights.
Cardwell has changed in many respects. A cyclone came ripping through the town in 2011.
The foreshore has been done beautifully. Houses rebuilt, some escaped the cyclone.
It's the Coral Sea, and part of Hinchinbrook Island where a special Lady once lived.
