|Cairns water pipe!|
Cairns whole supply comes from this source and the pipe was our guide to the top.
|That says, come on in!|
Now, we had the task of finding a way down to the waters edge but not before we refilled the 150mls with fresh water flowing out of the pipes. I looked through the trees and made out some lads jumping into the swirling water. There were people swimming? Surely, we could too.
The whole experience took 4 hours giving us time to tick another box at Babinda Boulders, another swim hole, which was pretty busy when we arrived.
Serenaded by a flutist playing Annie’s Song we watched the Pelicans floating on the flood tide before making our way back to Kewarra
only to be stopped and breathalysed by a local Bobby! 47 years, never blown into the tube and luckily I had only drunk one bottle of Singha.
