Thursday 21st of July 2016 and we went to the car as soon as I had paid my bill. We left Jabiru Safari Lodge and Mareeba Tropical Savanna and Wetland Reserve behind. Well, we stopped at my tent to pick up my bag before we continued towards Cairns.
I was comfortable in the back sipping on a diet drink and sucking on my e-cigarette when we left. 2 nights at Jabiru Safari Lodge in the Mareeba Tropical Savanna and Wetland Reserve is a minimum.
One night just isn't enough, but this is the same almost where ever you are going. Anyway, if you come to Cairns I recommend that you put 2 days aside for Jabiru Safari Lodge and the Mareeba Tropical Savanna and Wetland Reserve.
And what a difference it was leaving, sunshine comparing to arriving here in rain.
And arriving here, I was like a dog in the back of the car running back and forth looking for Kangaroos.
Now I couldn’t care less as I had seen more than enough of the kangaroos during my time at Jabiru Safari Lodge. Now I only need to see a Koala and I can go back home.
I enjoyed myself relaxing in the back. But the good times and relaxing was soon coming to an end. We drove through Mareeba and I spotted a big cockatoo parrot in a tree. Yes, I missed this photo opportunity and I grabbed my camera.
I hanged the camera around my neck and now I spent the rest of the tour looking around for interesting things to see.
We passed a road sign warning us for the Cassowaries bird for the next 3 kilometre. I told the driver that it would be nice to see one of those. But he told me that we would be better off staying WELL
(genus Casuarius) are very large flightless birds native to the tropical forests of New Guinea and north-eastern Australia. The Southern Cassowary is the third largest flightless bird on the planet, smaller only than the ostrich and emu.
clear of any Cassowaries as they are a very dangerous bird. Especially the female as she does all the fighting.
She have long claws and she can split you in half kicking you. So it is really a very dangerous bird. Well, at least I got to see the road sign. Better than nothing and it made the trip a wee bit more exciting.
We had passed the Henry Ross Lookout on the way here, but it had been foggy and we never bothered to stop. But now we would stop to have a look.

We were back at Pacific Cairns Hotel around 11 thirty. The will come to pick me up from the rainforest tour at one thirty so I have some time to kill. I checked in and while the girl did the paper work I went to the vending machine to get some diet drinks.
The girl had obviously seen me before and she asked me why I didn't go to Woolworth or whatever it was and bought a full case. I told her never mind and she asked if I wanted a plastic bag.
I told her that it was OK and I went to check out the vending machine. OK, next adventure will be in the rainforest and we just need to click HERE to find out how that turned out.
OK, it has come to my knowledge that we have senior citizens visiting my web page. How hard can it be? So it's not very easy for them to see the blue coloured links to the next page.
