After spending the last few months locked away like everybody else it was enjoyable to hit the road again & head up to Cairns to catch up with the Kids & Grandkids.
We did the trip up in quick time spending a night at Calliope River, Proserpine & Tully. Tully lived up to its reputation as being the wettest town in Australia by raining most of the time we were there. Just had enough time to have a walk down the main street (not much happening) & check out the big boot & a couple of sugar locos.
We stayed at Cool Waters Caravan Park in Cairns. Stayed here last year & is a top spot. Creek running behind us with turtles & nice & shady. Bit quiet with no Victorians around.
Copperlode Dam is in the hills behind Cairns & is the main water supply that feeds the Crystal Cascades. The road up also gives a great view of the city.
The younger Grandkids came around to feed the turtles in the creek.
