Beautiful waterfalls and a never ending beach

On to Tuesdays events. We still had our little hire car, so we had a drive around to see some local sights. Firstly, we headed for Cedar Creek Falls, which is about 15km out of Airlie beach. Hidden away deep in the bush, we made it and these Falls are stunning. The water was very cold, so we didn't go for a swim. Jase and I were also a bit worried about not seeing the bottom, plenty of crocs up there. But everyone assured us there were no crocs in Cedar Creek falls because it was too high up river...we still weren't taking any chances.

Along the same road, about 15kms on is Conway Beach. I have never seen a beach quite like this one. It goes forever. We think it would have been about 1km out to the water. Tide was out of course, but only a light breeze was blowing - enough to fly a kite. It really was a never ending beach.

Then headed back to Airlie Beach and out to Shute Harbour. Not heaps at Shute Harbour, mainly the ferry terminal out to the islands. Georgeous clear water and plenty of boats!

Such a beautiful place...

Chat soon,
