Admin please delete if not permitted 🙂 For those who love nature and would like to foster this in their children, may I recommend an audio adventure for kids called Daintree Kids Find Mad Dog's Cave -- an eco-minded audio story set in the World heritage-listed Daintree Rainforest of Far North Queensland, Australia. Come along and find out about stinging trees, glowing fungi, bandicoots and cassowaries as our intrepid explorers - brother and sister Sam and Bec and their best friends Dylan and Camille - hike upstream and accidentally discover Mad Dog's cave.

Wild about Australia shared Anura Marketing's Papua New Guinea Explorer.
Check out this video from my friend Amelia Tockston who runs Anura Marketing. Great video and fantastic trip. ... See MoreSee Less
It's hard to put into words what an incredible time I had traveling through the remote islands of Papua New Guinea. Perhaps this video collage will do a better job--it's a window into a culture that we in the Western world could learn a great deal from...if we could just slow down enough to listen and take note! All audio was recorded on the trip. Listen to those vocal harmonies of the children - extraordinary, right?! I could listen to them all day. And those hand-made costumes and graceful dancing... Those warm smiles...that joy for life and community, and that love for nature and one's heritage. Just wow. Expedition: Papua New Guinea Explorer with Heritage Expeditions Video: Anura Marketing

The commencement of the dry season signals the time when people are able to drive to the very top of Cape York Peninsula.
Completing that adventure at the very northernmost tip of the Australian mainland can be a defining moment in many people's lives. But I think that it is the journey through some of Australia's most amazing habitats and landscapes, and seeking out some of our unique and spectacular wildlife that makes this adventure one of the best to undertake in all of Australia.
Once you get past Queensland's wet tropical rainforest on the Bloomfield track above Cape Tribulation, onto Cooktown and beyond, the adventure and rugged remoteness of this region takes over. The landscape seemingly changes with a blink of the eye, from broad grassy plains with magnetic termite mounds, to tall eucalyptus forest, tropical heath and even remnant rainforest with a treasure trove of unique plants and animals. Each landscape, and what lives within them, should be savoured and explored.
I have been fortunate to visit 'the Cape' on numerous occasions during my professional life. My first adventure was in October 1989 chasing Cane Toads for my research. After that I did consecutive wet season fauna surveys based at Heathlands in the early 1990's and have since undertaken several research, wildlife filming, expedition guiding and recreational trips.
I have posted a selection of my favourite images from my visits to the Cape. The region has changed during the past 28 years, but I know you can still find little remote pockets where you can camp and be at one with the great Australian bush. Make the most of your journey through this area, but as always, take nothing but photographs, leave nothing but footprints so to let all future generations enjoy this wonderful wilderness. ...
