North Queensland Trip Day 22 – 26

23 August 2013

Today we left Cooktown heading south. First stop is always the Lions Den Hotel where we like to rest a while and take some photos.

From here it was off down the Bloomfield Track to Cairns. In the dry the track is not a challenge to drive.

Towards the end of the Bloomfield Track, between Cowie Point and Donovan Point,it tracks close to the coast, which was a great opportunity to stop and stretch the legs. Down a track we found this interesting beach where the tide was way out. Another great opportunity for a photograph or two. There were certainly some very interesting mangrove trees and interesting cloud formations.
