some sights we've seen since moving to Port douglas from Melbourne in sept 2014
Along with our now 9 year old daughter - we've met some of the critters of the north - outside on the footpath, on the beach, in our pool! and just 'hanging around' This is such a great place for a family holiday. This is not so much a place to smell the roses - its more a place to either sit down and see what walks past - or get out and look closely at all the amazing bugs and beetles and creatures up in this Far North Queensland Garden of Eden:)
Cassowary - one of two at Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas. We suggest best place to see is in the Daintree where they are truly wild. Always steer clear - they are a big bird with a big bite and the world's most dangerous bird! They are amazing to look at, and best seen in the wild. Also at Hartley's Crocodile Farm.
