Cairns: Botanic Gardens

On Monday afternoon I headed over to the Cairns Botanic Garden (and the nearby Mount Whitfield Conservation Park). I got to see some cool plants and flowers, as well as this rather odd looking bird known as an Australian Bush-turkey. I would have stayed longer but a hike in the Conservation Park was very draining — not to mention disappointing. After hiking up and up and up in temperatures in the high 80s I finally reached a lookout. Okay, so I reached a platform with a view of trees. And between the trees I could see…(wait for it) the airport! Not exactly the view I was expecting after a long, sweaty, tiring climb.
