It almost reminds me of a yankee township with a boardwalk along the main street.
And see what I found.
Are there other lions up here ?

Thx BIX, see your still uploading.

No need to reply, I followed through on that queensland link you have. It seems to have everything I need on there. Great find.

Thx for the posting, very inspirational.

Bix, i'd say it's nearly there; while Cairns itself can be a bit 'common', the Woolshed springs to mind, though most in there are Poms anyhow, just head north and eventually you fall into what I think is paradise, Cape Tribulation. 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!
