Port Douglas- QLD Australia

I just got back from a fantastic, but too short (a week) holiday with my man in Port Douglas, which is pretty much at the top of Australia in tropical north Queensland.
Port Douglas is just superb definitely somewhere to put on you list of things to do before you die!
The food is sensational, fruit is amazing and seafood is beyond awesome!!
The ocean was a steady 26-27*C, and weather was a lovely 30*C with about 65% humidity.

Photos, captions above if any

"Oh look an emu"


"Uh oh... he's coming closer"


"Ahhhhhhhh don't hurt me mr emu!!!"


Then he sat down 8)

I love Port Douglas. I'm a mid north coast of NSW chick, but my family and I take regular holidays up in North QLD.
Its just amazing isn't it?
I love the Great Barrier Reef. Its just breath-taking the colours and the fish and the water!

Haha yes, I'm a bit of a photo nut. Gareth was getting stroppy at me by the end of it because I was taking so many photos He's glad now though, think I could've taken even more actually!!!!

I might load a few more onto the computer tomorrow and pop them up :)

Gidji, lucky you getting to up there reguarly, it's just so beautifull! I've never been anywhere tropical before, I'm more of a snow/desert girl myself, have been to the Simpson desert numerous times, was was a big shock to go to Port Douglas. I'm in love I think, I told Gareth we're going to win the lotto and buy a place up there, stay there during winter then move to Tassie during summer

That area. Oh, I like veggiemite. LOL

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within. Douglas MacArthur
