Pt Douglas Trip - Part III

Farewelling Pt Douglas and bound for Cairns we headed into the mountains to visit Karanda. We could hear the roar of Baron Falls from such a distance, no photo can do it justice.

Where else can you buy a crocodile head for your nephew in Tokyo?

Next stop was Cairns.

A tropical Amsterdam? Lots of bikes and lots of beer!

No visit is complete without a visit to my favourite Japanese shop.

The life of a photographers girlfriend....waiting....

The next morning was our last on the road. Along with our last waterfall - Josephine Falls.

Our last rain forest.

Our last beach - Mission Beach.

Our last sugar refinery!

And our last run in with dinosaur sized birds that could obviously kill you and your 1950's Morris Minor sedan. Thank god they can't fly!!!!! But just in case they could we packed the Rover and headed for civilisation.

They say every good thing ends badly. Finishing this trip was heartbreaking!
