Just a bit of non-birding trivia for those interested in the weather and its
extremes -

The official rainfall for Mt Bellenden Kerr  (Queensland's second highest 
at 1582  metres and just south of Cairns) has been released by the Bureau of
Meteorology for the year 2000 -

12134 mm was recorded for the 12 months in the official rain guage on top of the
mountain  - that is just over 12  metres or almost 45 feet of rain in the old
measurements.    The mountain usually receives between 7 and 10 metres of rain
(records over about 18 years).
