FIELD NOTES: HOT WET CAIRNS

Rob van Driesum — 3 March 2010

Deputy editor Rob van Driesum visited Cairns during one hellava wet season, as part of our search to crown CW Touring Destination of the Year 2010.

This, however, didn’t perturb our veteran traveller.

“Barron Falls has never looked so spectacular”, said Rob, although his favourite campsite was closed due to floods.

Rob said it was five-shirt-a-day weather. The humidity was so high his lens fogged every time he grabbed the camera to take a photo.
