There’s a new bird on the block 🪺

Hey @purenewzealand, did you know that you can now fly direct from Auckland to Cairns with @airnz? 🌴 Today we said welcome back to our friends across the ditch for the first time in a year, and it looks like they're settling in with the locals already 😉

Prepare the pavlova…the Kiwis are coming 🥝

If you can think of the perfect place to relax & soak up some vitamin D, we’ll beat it by 10% 😉☀️ Wedged neatly between the Coral Sea & the @wettropicsworldheritage area lies the secluded #EllisBeach, just five minutes north of #PalmCove along the Captain Cook Highway 🐚🚙

Talk about a good place to spend the holidays 🌴 If the relaxed atmosphere is to your liking, stay a while at the Ellis Beach Oceanfront Bungalows & stop in at the @ellisbeachbargrill for a tasty meal (plus cheap oysters on Sundays! 🦪)

New life guard on duty for the school holidays 🌴😉

This feathered fellow decided to give @lifeguardmaxi a break and take over patrolling the beach at #EttyBay 🏖 

There’s not many places you can spot the elusive Southern Cassowary as you stroll along the beach, but @tropicalnorthqueensland is one of them! 🏝 Did you know that there are approximately 700 plant species endemic to the @wettropicsworldheritage area? And almost 100 species that heavily depend on the cassowary to distribute their seeds 🌴😲

Boat parties in @portdouglasdaintree is where it’s at 🥳

Whether you’re heading out on a guided river tour or hiring your own boat, there’s no better way to spend the day than exploring the waterways of the tropics 🌱 

What’s your favourite boating pastime? Ours is croc-spotting! 🐊

Nope, you're not flicking through the pages of @natgeo, although we wouldn’t blame you for thinking you were 💫🌴 Deep within a 180 million-year-old rainforest, where ​the Kuku Yalanji people have roamed for more than 50,000 years lies the pristine waters & stunning views of #MossmanGorge 🍃💦

Before you explore emerald green waters flowing over smooth, granite boulders enveloped by ancient tropical rainforest, head off on a Ngadiku Dreamtime Walk, peruse the gallery or sample the local food at @mossmangorge centre 🌿🎨🦖
