    Seastar dropped us off before the island we swam in. Enjoyed watching the hundreds of birds making their nest on this slender piece of land. One of my highlights.

    Green Arrow excellent walk….Worth starting at Green Arrow and continuing onto the Blue Arrow track to the botanical gardens…. Green Arrow is excellently maintained (but very steep in places) Blue Arrow less maintenance and fairly rough

    By Cairns library in the trees hundreds of bats roost during the day. It's quite smelly if you walk below the trees! At dusk they start to wake and make quite a noise before flying off for the night. Our hotel was on the western edge of Cairns and each night they flew directly over the hotel.

    An excellent day with our informative Marcio our driver. He certainly made sure our day was at a relaxing pace, safe and enjoyable, providing tasty food along the way. I’m sure there wasn’t a point of interest we didn’t cover. The views and scenery got better as the day progressed. Yes it rained but hey we are in the tropics. Thanks Marcio for a fabulous day!
