North Queensland visit for the weekend

Hey, Sanna and me visited North Queensland for the weekend to get away from the changing weather here in Sydney from warm to cooler as we get into Autumn. We visited Palm Cove where Sanna had a work conference and I flew up on the Friday after work to join her. 3 hrs flight from Sydney where it was 25 degrees and when I arrived it was 32 degrees with a clammy 95% humidity, its never that humid in Sydney, but North Queensland is in the tropics.

We were too busy (or not busy) relaxing and generally doing nothing much to remember to take a photo of the cove itself so here is a professional photo courtesy of We walked along the length of this beach twice over the weekend, very pretty and tropical feeling.

I didn’t know and went for a paddle in the sea which in the summer is full of deadly jellyfish and crocs, when I came out and wandered up the beach a bit I saw this sign, oops.


Queensland seas are not swimmer friendly!

Sanna slept by the pool one afternoon, its such a slow life in Queensland , so peaceful and quiet compared to Sydney, same country but worlds apart in speed of lifestyles. Queensland is lovely to visit and unwind for a few days.
