Thanks Berend. I enjoyed exploring Cairns, for it is a very attractive modern city. I loved its parks and gardens, its galleries and shopping centres, its tropical setting and its surrounding mountainous areas. It must be about 40 years since I was there so I enjoyed seeing that the provincial town has become a modern small city.
Greetings Berend. I have listed the populations at the last census of the largest significant urban areas of Queensland (above) , in which you will see that Cairns is our 5th largest city. The section seen in this photo is only the central area, for the city extends to Edmonton in the south and Palm Cove in the north, 35 km north-south axis.
I hope that you are able to revisit...soon.
I hope you do get to Cairns again!!!
I love this garden, Berend. I thought the Melaleucas and palms make a wonderful screnn camouflaging the old water reservoir on the one hand, while the reservoir makes a great backdrop to the garden.
There are three such tanks, now converted and used as art space and performance space.
Greetings from Oz.
Very different from Netherlands, eh! As you have seen this is a local landmark, Berend. Thanks for your appreciation.
Thank you Michael!
Best regards, May
You can't imagine that there was such a cruel war 100 years ago Ian. Thanks, greetings Berend
It was a very fine long weekend Ian and we had much fun. Greetings Berend
