Promoting QLD tourism


Recommended Posts


The surrounding of Cairns has enough sights for some days of exploration. And I do this with a scenic flight from Aeroglen / YBCS.

When you set the calendar to dry season you get clear skies, but only low tide at Barron River falls.

This flight leads us north along the spectacular coastal highway...

... to the visitor center...

... at Mossman Gorge.

From there it is not far to the Daintree River ferry, ...

... you better not go fishing or swimming there.

But when you drive up the hills to the north...

... you soon reach the famous rainforest.

In contrast to the regular tourist we can take a shortcut back to accomodation in Palm Cove.

Very nice shots Gerold. Today is the day QLD opened up it's borders 

to everyone, without having to worry about vaccination proof paperwork.

But give it a short time and they will close again. It's been a bit like a

yoyo up there.

Oops sorry you were promoting the area.:D

Come to Tassie for the best experience ever.:D

cheers

That yoyo is making all of crazy, and cuts like back to a more basic level. And we are (globally) not used to that since, say, 1945.

Will do, Gumby, will do. In virtual soon, in real as soon as possible. Unfortunately I do not play tennis.

These previously-unnoticed inland borders add a bit to the craziness of these days. I live in one state and work (in case I drive to the office) in another one. With slightly different rules. And these rules change nearly every other week.

Some great, scenic tourism shots and another nice looking adventure from you Gerold :) I enjoyed the copious insertion of real world pictures to help with the immersion. Great stuff!

Marvelous shots Gerold of your time there when OZ was a free country . :):(

Thank you John. I feel a slight irony in your words, and the upcoming Olympic Games will show us the relations.

But still we all dislike that we can not travel the way the world was 2 years ago.

And it is by coincidence that I post the travel promotion on the day QLD opens, according to Gumby!

Sadly yes, I agree.  I fear the worst for Martyn, I haven't heard from him for three weeks.  I hope he's not in prison.

Hmm, three weeks is a long time, knowing that you were in frequent contact. And you were our only contact to this fantastic guy! I hope his birds keep him busy, I just read (in Australian Geography) it is a good breeding season.

Thanks a lot, Landon. I always enjoy making such posts on my own footsteps, and I will keep on dropping some of these proofs from time to time. Just wait until OLC Asia is released...
