Rod's Mystery Flight

Vicki and I booked a Virgin Mystery Flight and, on the day before departure, learnt that we were going to Cairns for 3 nights.  The weather was good and instead of hiring a car chose to take 2 local tours - one to the rainforest in the hinterland just behind Cairns itself (no need to go to the Daintree) and the other a full day food & wine tour of the Atherton Tablelands. 

Too many pics taken but here is a small selection.

The huge Curtain Fig tree on southern end of Atherton tablelands - near Lake Barrine

Overlooking the coast on the way to Kuranda

Same pic as above but processed as a really old worn photo
