2 Tree Kangaroos in back yard!!!

 what is that? I am wondering walking between our houses this morning.
Very long bushy tail otherwise maybe a pademelon.
Noooo, IT IS a Tree Kangaroo. Which was a little surprised as well and considered climbing on a tree but then chose the bush.
Brian heard two of them before making rather wild noises in the between the trees; is this called mating maybe...
We have never before seen one of these guys here. Very excited. Then, maybe we are the honeymoon destination for them, so later on, they go home where they usually live.
You know...people do a similar thing....
I try to get a photo next time.

PM supports power!!!

This is on website
6:29pm Nov 23
Energy and energy efficiency was firmly placed on the agenda at the G20 in Brisbane last week.
Tony Abbott made the following statement:

I was really pleased today that the climate discussion was in the context of a session devoted to energy efficiency because there are 1.3 billion people around our globe – one fifth of the world’s population that don’t have access to electricity. Now, how can these people lead a decent life? How can those people live the kind of life that people in Germany and Australia take for granted, without access to power?

So, we do have to expand access to power and the only way to make power more available, to make electricity more available and at the same time address the emissions issue is if we tackle energy efficiency.

I am not making this up, read it on the PM's website, last paragraph down the bottom;

Support finally

this is brand new NEWS

I will let you when we are connected.......on this property....

On a more cheerful note, Dad Cassowary marched through with his tiny, tiny chick yesterday afternoon. The chick is so small, that I had to zoom it in, by that stage Dad was already in the forest.
They were in a hurry....
Have a great day.

Air Conditioned? Yes !

 just to let everyone know, we are the only B&B accommodation north of the Daintree River with air conditioners in the bed rooms!!!
These are brand new and efficient, and very quiet. Available from November to April/May.
We still are not on mains power---this is another story and out of our hands----,
so the old rule applies: if you don't use it or need it: lights, fans, air cons, please turn it off. The batteries can only supply so much.
And yes: we so have some vacancies; check availability here
and book your visit.
