โฃ
Our warm tropical โ˜€๏ธ temperatures are ideal for growing sugar!โฃ
โฃ
Approximately 95% of Australiaโ€™s sugar cane is grown in Queensland and approximately 80 - 85% of Queenslandโ€™s raw sugar is exported. ๐Ÿ“ฆโฃ
โฃ
The Tully Sugar Mill operates one of the LARGEST sugar mills in Australia! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ During the cane crushing season ๐Ÿ“† of June โ€“ November you can even visit to take a tour and learn about the history and process of the local sugar cane industry.โฃ
โฃ
If visiting during these months you will also see cane trains ๐Ÿš‚ and carriages standing and waiting to be filled. They make such a beautiful rustic photo ๐Ÿ“ท against the cane fields! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿฝโฃ

Many of them are tantalisingly close to the mainland, and itching to be explored by kayak. ๐Ÿšฃ๐Ÿป Like the North Barnard Group of islands, otherwise known as the โ€˜Barniesโ€™. ๐Ÿค™๐Ÿฝโฃ โฃ
Kent Island, on the left, is a photographers ๐Ÿ“ธ playground, a birdwatchers ๐Ÿฆ paradise, and for anyone else, a true Robinson Crusoe experience. ๐Ÿ—บ โฃ
โฃ
And great news, there's even a designated campsite here too! ๐Ÿ• A camping permit is required, as it's a commonwealth lighthouse reserve, but there is no fee for a permit.โฃ
โฃ
Here itโ€™s all about exploring the rainforest ๐ŸŒณ, strolling the beaches ๐Ÿš, snorkelling in crystal azure waters ๐ŸŒŠ and soaking in the sunsets. ๐ŸŒ…Sounds tough, doesnโ€™t it? ๐Ÿ˜œโฃ

What if we told you itโ€™s where two gorgeous freshwater ๐Ÿ’ฆ creeks come together, after flowing down from the tropical mountains ๐ŸŒณ in Tully Gorge National Park, surrounded by lush rainforest ๐ŸŒด, and the best part....

๐Ÿ“Alligators Nest is a somewhat hidden gem located only about 30 mins ๐Ÿš˜ from Mission Beach and has BBQ facilities, toilets, picnic ๐Ÿงบ tables and shaded grassy areas, so itโ€™s worth finding! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝโฃ

Cassowaries ๐Ÿฆ have the lashes and eyeshadow ๐Ÿ‘€ thatโ€™s so on fleek they should be walking the runway at fashion week! ๐Ÿ’ซโฃ
โฃ
But instead they strut through the world heritage listed Wet Tropics rainforest ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿƒ... which is SO much better! And we're lucky enough to see these guys all through our region with ๐Ÿ“ Etty Bay and ๐Ÿ“Mission Beach being some of their faves! ๐Ÿ˜‰โฃ
โฃ
Our Cassowaries play such an important role in the wet tropics ๐ŸŒด๐Ÿ”„ ecosystem as the #1 disperser of rainforest plants by dispersing the seeds from the fruit they eat ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ™Š throughout the rainforest to help it thrive and grow! ๐ŸŒฑโฃโฃ
