Bramston Beach to Cairns

We got up early to see the sunrise over the Pacific (or the coral sea, as this part of it is known). Then we packed up and headed out early to avoid the heat.

We took a little side trip up to The Boulders, just west of Babinda, to try to see a cassowary (someone told us they'd seen one here). Again, no luck for us. We did see some sugarcane being harvested though.

We swam in the safe pool at The Boulders, just downstream from here is pretty dangerous water, with warning signs all around. The biggest danger for us was the biting flies! They're a bit like a small horsefly - I think they call them march flies.

Back on the road, we stopped at Fishery falls for another ginger beer, then past farms and into the city.

Back to "civilization", where the drivers are considerably less civil...
