Mini Break in the Far North!

Rob and I have arrived in Mareeba - a small town in the far north Queensland tablelands. By comparison to our previous posts, its positively metropolitan! Its only 45 minutes from Cairns, an hour to Port Douglas and has pretty much all the services and shops one needs. We are working at the local hospital, in the emergency department. Its more of a GP clinic, with emergency facilities, but anything of note goes to Cairns, and here the doctors are pretty much seeing everyone, so we are just cruising along. Its more of a working holiday. The work is easy, not at all stressful and there is no on-call. So hence, we are utilising our days off. Over the weekend we hired a car and headed to Port Douglas for a little mini break. It was all cocktails, swim up bar, delicious food and walks along the beach. Some little photo tempters for all of you (especially our fellow Tasmanians, who are probably freezing their butts off right now!)


  1. Yep ... it's all swim up puddles, windscreen frosts and heaters a go go down these parts. Have a cheeky mojito next time, huh? For me. xxx

  2. I'm now following your delightful blog and hope that you will follow me in return. I especially love your photos!
