Order of the Boot in Sugar Land

We have landed in Inisfail a short drive away from Cairns This place is sustained by the HUGE sugar cane industry and boasts the record rainfall in ONE year hence the “Wellie”(in suburban Tully)which depicts the amount of rain fallen !! These sugar factories are common in FNQ ( Far North Queensland) and small trains deliver from field to factory !! the main roads are criss crossed with train tracks The industry is active from May to December and the fields of CANE are a sight to see (sadly 135 Cane Toads were introduced a lot of years ago to control other pests They in turn have BECOME the pest ! killing other wild life and poisonous if eaten by other animals Being released by authorities in 1930s they are now in the millions !! Locals in Qld spray them with Dettol which apparently kills within seconds !! Annual Musters are held in an attempt to cull the frogs !! COMING UP…in and around Cairns in pictures !!
