bundjalung national park

After travelling the  twenty or so kilometres of narrow dirt road you are rewarded with the Black Rocks section of the Bundjalung National Park.  Long expanses of deserted beach, creeks for paddling and exploring, and a diversity of wildlife awaits you.  A noisy sea at night gives way to a warm orange sunrise across the black rocks.

dunk island accommodation

This accommodation was comfortably sitting on the beach at Dunk Island looking south across to the more exclusive Bedarra Island.  Not a bad way to spend some time away from it all on a near deserted tropical island!

The early morning cloud lends itself to the creation of a stunning array of light as you look across to Dunk Island.

Chillagoe charms

Tucked away a couple of hundred kilometres west of Cairns is the small town of Chillagoe.  The rainforest and the wet tropics quickly disappear and you are into dry country with lots of rocks and dust. Once a bustling smelting town, it is now much quieter.  Don’t make the mistake however of thinking because there is no hustle and bustle there is nothing to do. Quite the opposite.

Play golf, go swimming, explore the smelting history, go caving or take  a cool ale at one of the pubs.  No need to set an alarm, the galah chorus will get you up on time. You can easily check the weather before your planned activities too!

it makes you want to get outside

Geelong waterfront

On a sparkling sunny day, the Geelong waterfront and its vibrancy is the place to be with family and friends.

Include a melt in your mouth fruity gelato along the way.
