Tropical Far North Queensland

This is about my holiday from Cairns to
Laura, on the lower Cape York Peninsula from
September 2008 to October 2008. Going from Melbourne to Cairns to Port Douglas, to Cooktown and Laura, Cape Tribulation and all the bits in between, and finally back to Cairns for my flight home.

13. Mossman Gorge - The Suspension Bridge

Monday 22 September

The Rex Creek Suspension Bridge is a real treat and was one of the highlights of my trip to Mossman Gorge. I waited for several minutes to get a photo without people on the bridge. The best part of crossing this bridge is when you're sort of in the middle, jump up and down making the bridge "swing" - doesn't half scare some of the tourists.

I am ashamed to say I was guilty of this and derived the greatest pleasure from it - childish I know, but lots of fun!

Swimming anyone?

One of the popular water holes for swimming and just general water play.

Australian Bush Turkey

The Australian Brush-turkey Alectura lathami, also frequently called the Scrub Turkey or Bush Turkey, is a common, widespread species found in Eastern Australia from FNQ to the Illawarra in NSW and grows 60–75 cm and has a wingspan of about 85 cm. This fellow was running about at quite a fast pace. You can read more information about these birds here.
