Cairns – Tropical North Queensland
It’s very hard to choose a caravan park just by looking in a book. We usually like to have a look at the available places to stay before we make a decision, however we had been told the the parks in Cairns are often booked out and we should organise something before we arrived. Anyway, Cool Waters caravan park turned out to be a fine choice. There was a creek that bordered the park, filled with biggish fish, really big eels and lots of turtles of various sizes. No fishing was allowed, but you could feed all the fish, etc which was quite entertaining and there was a very pretty spot beside the water with table and seats, just perfect for enjoying a sundowner.
We visited the Cairns Botanic Gardens which are well laid out and very tropical, as you would expect.
