Morning. Today we are going to visit Shayne Stevens at Rainforestation near Kuranda. This will be a visit to the park and to say hello to Shayne. Who I haven't seen since last year.

From there we take the development road up to Rossville to the lions Den hotel. A great outback pub. I probably will swing into Cooktown to throw a line off the pier. Hopefully the weather will be kind. Last year when we were up. It blew a gale. Will try again.

Met Shayne at 10:00. She took us to the Koalas, Wombats, Roos,Dingos, Lizards and then onto the dream time walk and Aboriginal cultural show. Said goodbye and headed towards Cooktown.

It's 320 km to Cooktown from Cairns. Using the development road is easy. Very little traffic and Fairly quick.

We arrived at the Lions Den at about 430. Set up my swag and headed into Cooktown for tea.

After tea straight to the pier. Seems to be always the same. Lots of little bait fish. The air temp is very cold for this time of year. We gaveit ago and as usual , no Luck.

On our journey home we searched for Reptiles. Again. No luck. Tucked into my swag at 2100. Night from the Lions Den Hotel. FNQ
