Mareeba is the first of our long series of golf tournaments as we head (slowly) back down south and towards home. We find a fantastic camping spot about 5 Kms north of the town on a farming property called ‘Birds on Barron’. We camp here for 8 days. We are visited daily by a friendly emu, three dogs, two horses and a miscellany of native bird life.
WE HAVE OUR OWN NATIONAL PARK !! Davies Creek is a National Park just north of Mareeba with an impressive waterfall and a scenic walk along the creek.
Cairns is just a day trip away – we have been there quite a few times before but it is still worth a trip.
