Another quick stop at Tully, a town infamous for being the wettest town in Australia, garnering an average rainfall of 4000mm. The town also boasts one of the largest number of UFO sightings in Queensland. The Golden Gumboot shows the actual height of the record rainfall of 7.9 Metres which fell on Tully in 1950.

Etty Bay

Our next Golf comp is at Cardwell. Having hit a jackpot with our recent platypus encounter, we now try for another first – a real life cassowary. So we are off to Etty Bay, a beach where 8 days out of 10 cassowary’s are spotted. Unfortunately we hit one of the 2 out of 10 days when they didn’t appear. We did spot some sky divers though. I have popped in a picture of a cassowary so you can see what we missed.
