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??
trinity beach, cairns, FNQ.
