Davies Creek is well worth a visit....awesome views
juil. 2015 • En couple
Davies Creek is about 20kms south west of Cairns....it is signposted but to get to the Falls is around 15kms off road.....you really need an sub or four wheel drive.....if you go rights up to the falls there is a pool for swimming and awesome views.

So many beautiful areas
juin 2015 • En couple
Recommended drives that we undertook include:
> Captain Cook Highway between Cairns and Port Douglas ("where the rainforest meets the reef")
and
> Gillies Highway off Bruce Highway from Cairns to Yungaburra and the Atherton Tablelands

Both involve very windy roads but the scenery is absolutely worth it.

Drive to distraction
avr. 2015 • Entre amis
The Wet Tropics World Heritage area covers a few areas including around Kuranda but I want to write about the coastal drive from Cairns to Port Douglas. The stretch from the northern beaches of Cairn for about 20-25km thru Ellis Beach and onwards is a perfect scenic drive. It is Cairns own mini version of the Great Ocean Road. The mountains come all the way to the ocean with just a ribbon of pristine beach between. Stunning scenery. Rex Lookout is a standout but there are others.

Never a dull moment

We did the round trip: Cable Car ride to Kuranda Village and back on the train, $ 70 AUD pp for 6hr non-stop fun and entertainment for all the family. The tour is exceptionally well paced and so varied, it holds interest the entire time.

The first part is a 7 km cable car ride over the rainforest, broken up into several sections, each with a varied combination of guided tours, exhibitions and interesting views.

Then there is a middle section in the village: craft shops, butterfly sanctuary, icecream and walks through the rainforest. There is time for a 45min boat trip on the Barron River, which is extra.

The train journey back is in a quaint, thirties-style car, with photostops and interesting commentary on its history.

Really well put together: genuinely informative, entertaining without being cheesy and excellent value for money.

Trip to Kuranda
janv. 2012 • En solo
Kuranda is a tourist town. Accessed via road, train or cable car, they come to check out the views of Barron Falls & the various lookouts such as Wrights Lookout, buy a souvenir and then head back to coastal accommodation all in a day. I however decided to stay a few.

National Parks surround Kuranda. On the road up I travelled through lush rainforest (part of the Barron Gorge National Park), spotting two species of frog in the pouring rain as I went (and no cane toads!). At the top of the rise is the Barron River. Beyond that the landscape starts to dry out and just 20 km further West is Davies Creek National Park which couldn't be more different to the Wet Tropics!

My usual early rise and the relatively short journey to Black Mountain Road meant I was in rainforest by 7am. I'd read about Kuranda National Park on the coastal side of the Barron River as being a good place to see Victoria's Riflebirds and Southern Cassowaries. It's part of a corridor that extents through Kuranda north to Mowbray National Park and beyond.

Further along the road I saw more evidence of the birds presence in the form of traffic signs warning that the birds were about. It wasn't long before I heard this unfamiliar calling coming from the road side to the right. I immediately stopped my bike and started scouring the rainforest floor. I couldn't remember what the call of a cassowary was but I could tell by the call this was a big animal. However it was not coming from the ground. I looked up into the trees and found the source. A Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo stared back at me and continued calling loudly.

Not long after my second ever sighting of a tree kangaroo in the wild, I had yet another second ever sighting and another real treat, a Cairns Birdwing Bufferly.

The Barron Gorge National Park is seperated by the Barron River. Any animals unable to cross the River from the western bank to the Eastern corridor are excluded from accessing a much larger forested area. Their isolation means they become more susceptible to diseases due to in-breeding. Cassowaries are one of the animals not renowned for their swimming ability. With this in mind I wasn't sure what I would find as I set out to explore the smaller western side and was pleasantly surprised to see a cassowary just a hundred or so metres down the Mcdonalds track past Wrights Lookout

Leaving the Wet Tropics behind I travelled 20 km west to the Davies Creek NP. I set off just after midnight to avoid the heat of the day and after several stops arrived at the camp ground just before dawn. There are clear signs here "NO PETS ALLOWED" (for a very good reason). 2 km's of hill climbing followed to reach an elevation of just over 500 metres above sea level. Here the landscape is dry, almost desert like and dominated by grass trees and eucalypt.

On the way back to Cairns I stop at Cattana Wetlands near Yorkey's Knob. I spot some green pygmy-geese from the hide (another new species). On leaving I spot metallic starlings and a yellow-bellied sunbird near the entrance. In town a huge flock of rainbow bee-eaters settle down for the night. Pied imperial-pigeons (my favourite bird) fly from tree to tree

The Most Beautiful place on Earth
juin 2012 • En famille
THe Daintree Rainforest is the most place to visit just to drive through it is breath taking, a great time to visit is during wet season when the water falls cascade across the road.
Cant highly reccomend enough a river cruise on the mighty Daintree River right in the heeart of the jungle....

美到一塌糊涂
08年的夏天过去的。
到澳洲的时候刚好是那边的冬天,但是一点也不觉得冷,穿了薄薄的外套就出门逛街去了。
澳洲的阳光很温暖,街道整洁干净,人也非常nice。
黄金海岸是真心的漂亮。言语无法形容的美~

用肉眼看见星河
在昆士兰的国家公园,除了能看到著名的蓝色萤火虫,更让人惊讶的是它那保护完好的自然环境,不需要高倍望远镜,用肉眼我们就能在天上看到星云和星河。
