Reg and I have arrived at the Flying Fish Point, Tourist Park this afternoon and set up for what will be our winter base, for touring, writing and my art.
Such a friendly welcome, Reg, Indigo our poodle and I are going to love it here.
Our powered caravan site, is a little tropical oasis, the pool to our left, the dog friendly beach directly across the road and a large green oval behind us where pretty faced, wallabies are sometimes seen grazing.
They say the fishing is fantastic here. Reg has never gotten into fishing but if we stay here for winter, maybe this is the time to buy him a fishing rod and try it. I could possibly sit, fish and paint beside him.
Innisfail, looked like a pretty town as I drove through it, I will enjoy going there to shop and walk. It is 7 kms away from Flying Fish Point, on the “Great Green Way", an area of outstanding natural beauty spanning from Townsville to Cairns in tropical North Queensland. Innisfail Web Site.
I will be very busy, with swimming, beach running and my writing and painting even if I never leave this beautiful caravan park, but when I am ready to venture out the area has so much to offer including two World Heritage listings. These being the Wet Tropics Rainforests and the Great Barrier Reef. Over 25 tropical islands off our coast, over 12 mainland National Parks, and Flying Fish Point, is the closest mainland access in Queensland to the Outer Barrier Reef
Reg has fond memories of the Atherton Tableland and is eager to see it again and I have a good friend Gem in the mountains west of Cairns, who I am keen to visit some time while we are here. I think this will make the perfect base camp for a wonderful winter holiday plus writing and painting inspiration.
