October Field Trip and titbits

Outings – Herberton & Irvinebank
Our next outing is scheduled for Sunday 29th October.
An early stopover in Herberton is recommended for those who want to photograph the flowering trees – Jacaranda and Flame Trees (Brachychiton aceriflorius) which will be in full bloom. Herberton is 97km from Cairns via the Gillies Highway and you would need to allow 1hr 50m for the trip.
Irvinebank is a further 25km from Herberton and the road is mainly gravel. One of our members has recently traveled this road and reports that it is in good to fair condition. Some members have expressed concern that Irvinebank may be too hot for an October outing. The township is 750m above sea level (about the same as Atherton) and as such, we should expect temperatures about 5 degrees cooler than Cairns. Continue Reading →
