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.

14. Cairns - Tropical Night Zoo

Monday 22 September

When the sun goes down come along and see what the local indigenous folk of the animal world get up to. For a touch of "Australiana", you can't go past the Cairns Tropical Night Zoo. They do pick-ups and drop-offs (good if you want more than one drink!) and you leave at 7.30pm.

First you start off with an Aussie barbie - steak, chook (chicken), fish, roast spuds, and tomato and salads. There's champagne, beers, wines and soft drinks. For dessert I had Pavlova and cream (2 helpings). After this the guide took us around (with a torch) to see some of the animals - lots of alligators and crocodiles. I took heaps of photos, but unfortunately deleted them. (Well, you live and learn eh?)


Ring Tail Possum

Meet "Blossom", the ring tail possum. All the people there were in raptures over this cute, furry little creature.
