Went up to Port Douglas today. The drive along the Captain Cook Highway is very scenic, in fact has world heritage status.
This is a picture from a lookout along the way. Let’s just say I am not homesick yet!
This is Four Mile Beach at Port Douglas. Bill Clinton is known to like visiting here regularly.
We had lunch at the Mossman River which is a popular swimming and picnic place.
This is the bush in the Mossman Gorge. No snakes spotted, which I was nervously looking out for.
We then went to the Rainforest Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary.
A bird whose name I have no idea of, but beyond doubt my mother could name at 100 paces.
Another bird. This one has longer legs.
This is not a bird. I am pretty sure it is a koala bear.
This is a Kangaroo. And yes I did call him Skippy. Skippy likes to be patted.
This is another big bird. Not the one off Sesame Street though.
These are crocodiles. You are asked not to feed them.
A pretty bird.
A bird for Spanner – red and green
Cats back home, who are disappointed they did not get to meet any birds.
