More photos from my vacation
The gardens in tropical North Queensland are lush and green straight after the Wet Season and Sea Temple is beautifully landscaped. Plants include palms, crotons, elephants ear, lobster plants, star gardenia, flax and some only grown in this area. The butterflies are huge and irridescent while we also saw bats, tiny bright yellow hummingbirds and colourful lorikeets in the gardens. There was also a friendly baby tree frog in the rooftop spa when we visited my husbands boss for a BBQ dinner. The temperature did not drop below 21 degrees C at night and climbed to 32 degrees C during the day, very pleasant and not so humid as Sydney. I even walked for an hour on the beach one day, very rare for me, but it was very relaxing.
