Sunday 23rd April 2017


OMG, the rain has stopped! Well not till after 11am, but for the rest of the day we saw blue skies!

We made the most of the opportunity & headed for South Mission & Wongaling Beaches for a look around. Geoff spotted a Cassowary, which had just crossed the road with 2 chicks...excitement!

There were good views of Dunk Island from both South Mission Beach & Wongaling. I hope we can do a day trip over there whilst we are here.

Our very first Cassowary sighting- with chicks in tow too!

Oops! Grounded in the Hull River
