Aural morning in Daintree

Aural mornings at Wonga Beach.
Trillions of cicadas are giving a loud daytime chorus in their efforts to attract mates and 
keep predators at bay.
Earlier the raucous calls of Channel-billed Cuckoos came from the heavens and anywhere behind the beach the haunting calls of Pied Imperial Pigeons can be heard.

Beach Stone-curlew on the beach at Wonga.

Stunning early morning walk along Wonga Beach at low tide produced 
Beach Stone-curlew. Just south of Janbal Street.
Crocodiles: Be wary about crocodiles and stay away from the Daintree River mouth to the north of Pinnacle Village. Don't walk on the beach at high tide or go on the beach when it is dark.

Lovely Fairy-wrens

Birdwatching Season

Lovely Fairy-wrens are endemic to Cape York and are difficult to spot. They are usually heard well before they are seen with their high pitched whispy calls. For the last few mornings they have been heard in Reservoir Road, Wonga Beach. The entrance is 300 metres south of Caltex Wonga, blink and you will miss it.

Intergration - brochure and mobile phone.

 History making. Maybe a world first?

It is not unusual to find a QR code on a tourist brochure, in fact there are a couple in Port Douglas. What is history making here is the QR code, once scanned on a mobile phone goes to a mobile phone website and not a full sized website.
Simple really. 

And then there is the screen button. 

Of course, even on Android.
