thanks Laurie...

because the Cassowary Coast starts at Cardwell Gap (this I do know), and 
continues nothwards to end just south of Cairns, that means that FNQ covers the 
whole area north from Cardwell Gap to Cape York.

I have had more than a few responses to my question of where FNQ covers to have 
agreed that the southern boundary of FNQ is Cardwell Gap, so I am going to run 
with that in future.

I had always thought that FNQ included Townsville, but now I know that it 

I love learning new things!!

by the way, has anybody else caught up with the Black-tailed Gull up here yet??

thanks again,

martin cachard
