7 Things to Do these School Holidays on the Atherton Tablelands

IMG_0451

This time last year I wrote this post with some ideas for things to do on the Atherton Tablelands in the school holidays.  There is so much great stuff to do up here in our neck of the woods that I decided it was high time I put a few more of my favourite school holidays activities out there into cyber space!  With still a week of school holidays left – there is still plenty of time to get out and about and have some school holiday fun.

So, here’s 7 more things to do these school holidays on the Atherton Tablelands – Fealy Family style of course! Continue reading

Jungle Surfing in the Daintree Rainforest

jungle surfer – noun

“an adventurer who effortlessly flies from tree to tree, soaked in the ancient beauty of the Daintree Rainforest”

So, one of the best things about staying a bit closer to home for our Fealy Family Adventure this year, was less fuel costs meant a little bit of ‘treat’ money towards doing something really awesome on our trip.  After setting up camp at Lync Haven Camping Ground, we did some research (asked the campground receptionist, google, trip advisor) and decided that a Jungle Surfing Canopy Tour looked too good to miss and we sure weren’t disappointed!  A Cape Tribulation Sea Kayaking Tour and Cape Tribulation Hore Rides were close contenders, but we had to leave them for next time!

Sunday Snapshot – World Tourism Day

IMG_0307

Just a quick Sunday Snapshot post tonight.  Those of you who follow us on Facebook and Instagram will have seen that we have been joining in with World Tourism Day today.  We spent the day at Palm Cove – the kids loved the time at the beach and I got to take part in an ‘Instameet’ (gathering of instagrammers) and meet a few other social media junkies from Tropical North Queensland!  I love Palm Cove and I have blogged about it before here, so not much more to say really other than here’s a couple more favourite shots from the day!  Oh – and go and check it this cute video Matt took of Kipp loving the beach on the Blue Sky Produce Instagram handle.

Camping at the Daintree

IMG_8860I’ve been hanging out to tell you all about the great ten days camping we had in late June, early July this year and seeing as it is World Cassowary Day today, I thought a post about camping in the Daintree where we got to see a real life cassowary and his chick, would be fitting.  After a busy mango and avocado season at Blue Sky Produce, we were counting down the days until we could hitch Black Betty up and hit the road for our annual camping holiday.  We had opted for something close to home this year, something not as costly in terms of fuel and not having to spend as much time driving with a 1 year old in the car!  We were also in need of some quality family time to relax, read and unwind, so wanted a trip with plenty of downtime in it.  It was going to be hard to beat our Lawn Hill trip from last year, but a round trip via the Daintree and Cooktown looked like just the right little jaunt for our Fealy Family Adventure for 2015!

Hello Again!

IMG_7114

Hi Everybody!  We’re still here, still alive and kicking!  Sorry about the radio silence, life has just got in the way and to be honest, I wasn’t sure how to keep blogging anymore – so many ethical questions around how much of our family life to share, whether we should be sharing photos of our kids, whether I had the time and energy to blog or should be better using my time elsewhere etc, etc, etc.  However, I’m back now because I missed blabbing away on here so much, and most of all, I missed not having a record of our family adventures to look back over in the years to come, so I’ve decided to forget the rest!   We’ve probably lost most of our followers by now, but if anybody is still out there and reading – a big HELLO!  We’ve missed you xoxoxo!
