Where is Tarzan???
The past week we have been staying with some friends at Kuranda. They own a couple of acres (it could be 20 as you don't see any fence lines) in the Tropical Rainforest. It rains a lot at Kuranda...Lots and lots but it isn't cold and you just drink more anyway. The first problem was birthing Big Bertha into Carl theCarport. Tony manage with Judy and my help of course. 2inches to spare... 1inch either side.
Peter & Judy have their son, Chris, Amanda (Chris's girlfriend)and Anais (exchange student from USA) and JAKE the guard dog living at there jungle five star resort. We settled in quite well.
Judy and Pete played the perfect host. Taking us out into the wilderness and showing us lots of waterfalls and swimming holes in their large mountain.
We went up to the Daintree Village for fish and chips and also to Port Douglas to see how the rich and famous live.
It was a lovely stay at the Kuranda Resort and I must say and I recommend it and can't wait to do it all again..
The problem was the Carl the Carport didn't want Big Bertha to leave. Carl somehow wanted to hug Big Bertha and I think Big Bertha didn't want to leave either.. She now has an extra dimple on her backside....
After leaving the Kuranda Resort, we headed south back to Townsville. We spent the day at the Aquarium. It was a lovely day just looking at all the Great BARRIER Reef has to offer. The coral was spectacular and the fish amazing. Very enjoyable. Tomorrow we are heading west to Charters Towers and we plan to stay there 3 nights. This is an old gold mine town and apparently has a bit of character. That is all to next time when I score a powered site (We have to beat the Mexicans to the sites first - always a challange I must admit- perhaps one day I may phone ahead and book a site???)I really hate to conform!!
