If you live in the tropics then by definition you probably live in paradise. Nuff said.

We stayed in the Beechouse resort there (nothing fancy) but beautiful. Laying around on white sand, kyaking out to another beach and eating coconuts, was a pretty awesome few days, and I am going back!
The Woolshed is Stan Collymores favourite pub

Not made it up to Trib or Daintree yet Russ, but it's on the list

Mate, if I hiked from here it would be more like 3 hours 45 minutes.
That's about 20km of hard climb.

A trip onto the Tablelands is called for.
A place I have yet to explore fully.
There's loads up there and I've seen very little.

Ascent via the Gillies which is off from Gordonvale, South Cairns.
A bloody long windy road that can be akin to a rollercoaster ride for passengers.

Stunning views though. Here's some.........
