Up the Cape!

First day of Autumn - how time has flown since Christmas.

Had a very busy 4 days.  Miss 4 and Master 2 came to stay for 3 sleeps. Delightful well behaved little ones.  We were up at 5 to 6 am mind you and we are not used to that.
Days were full of loving fun and laughter whilst the little ones parents went to Melbourne to the Caravan Show - and yes, they bought a caravan.

So back to Holiday 2016.
Cape Tribulation, Far North Queensland is a remote headland and ecotourism destination in northeast Queensland, Australia.  A coastal area within Daintree National Park, it offers a combination of rainforest and beaches.
Walking routes include boardwalks and ridge trail on Mount Sorrow. Bird-watching and jungle zip-lining are poplular activities.

    Love your Cape Tribulation photos. We do live in a beautiful (and varied) country.

    1. It's been so hot via the news where you live, and most people in Australia expect for a few places will be wishing autumn to come quickly and hopefully cooler...warm here today at 30 deg C...
      Our country is very varied, and that's good but it's a big country.

  9. We now have the zip thing nearby--- Not open again until warmer, drier weather arrives. I imagine your visit to the cape was lots of fun.

  10. Autumn!!!
    Well here it is raining and is starting to be a bloody nuisance.

    The Cape thank God is immune from mining etc and hopefully remains
    as a protected area for future generations to admire but these walks
    would have my eyes glued for those "friendly Joe Blakes" and feral pigs.
    Any feral water buffaloes in that area?????????
    Great photos especially the second one.

    1. I hear it's going to rain for awhile up your way Colin...
      Heritage area I guess so no mining or anything else much.
      Didn't see any feral pigs or buffaloes in the area and I expect there could be water ones somewhere buffaloes I mean.
      Thanks re photos.

  13. I get the impression that keeping the encroaching jungle back is a constant task. Caravanning must be in the family genes.

    1. I should it would be a never ending task.
      Seems the caravanning gene might run in the family - he's never been before, so we see if he and his wife like it...they don't get their van till May sometime.

      Always good to be able to help the family out.

  20. Really lovely green views.
    You go towards the autumn and we spring (as soon as the sun begins to shine, and the rest of the snow will melt).

    1. That's true - and our winter is certainly not as cold as yours with snow - only a few of our mountains get or have snow and it doesn't last for long apparently.
