North Queensland, Australia, 1998


In August 1998 Peter and I did fly to Cairns. 60 km north of Cairns is tropical Port Douglas, where we stayed at a Radison Reef Resort. Our travel agent had booked everything for us. Quite a few coach tours were included during our wonderful five day stay in North Queensland.

One of our bus tours took us as far north as Cape Tribulation.

  1. At Cape Tribulation civilisation comes to an end. From there only four-wheel-drive vehicles are allowed. Port Douglas and the Daintree Forest are amazing places.

    1. I loved these places. I wished we could go there again for another holiday like it! 🙂
      Reading glasses and dental procedures may take up a lot of our savings this year. What do you think, Berlioz, will there still be enough left for a little trip up north? 🙂
