We decided to risk another trip and booked an Outback Spirit tour to Cape York. Up very early for our 6:20 flight. It was foggy. The taxi arrived on time and we checked in at 5:40. Arrived in Brisbane, had a coffee in the lounge and then boarded for Cairns. The weather was humid so we collected our bags and sat in an outdoor cafe for lunch. Cold beer and a toasted sandwich. We met another couple from our tour from Wagga Wagga. At 1:20 we saw our bus. Met Lorraine and Ron , our married tour directors. A brand new bus.

There are only 13 on the tour as 4 people were from Melbourne and could not join us because of their COVID lockdown. After temperature checks we boarded and left the airport for a tour of Port Douglas.

We stopped at Flagstaff Hill for a view over Port Douglas below. Overnight stay at the Sheraton Mirage. Beautiful hotel and grounds near the beach. A lovely dinner and meet and greet with the other passengers.
