    Help - Good Photo Locations near Cairns...

    I'll be staying in Cairns for about a week soon and was wondering if people had any recommendations for some good locations I might consider taking photographs at. I'll be with my family and we'll be doing the normal touristy thing as well so I'm not going to be able to just run off for days and shoot, however if there are places which are either quick to get to from Cairns/Trinity Beach (so I might go myself) or also suitable for the kids to be entertained for a while as well. FYI: I'll also have a car for the week.

    Some I'm already aware of include (but if you have any specific location advice (e.g. park at XX and go the the YY at dawn, etc) at that location I'd be happy to hear it):
    • Cairns Esplanade
    • Cairns Botanical Gardens
    • Trinity Inlet
    • Mossman Gorge
    • Crystal Cascades
    • Daintree
    • Cape Tribulation (I assume this is probably a full day trip from Cairns - any specific places the whole family could easily get to and have fun?)
    • Atherton Tablelands (again a day trip?)

    I do have 2 more suggestions
    The first to try is Paronella Park located at Mena Creek, it's just an hour & a half drive south of Cairns but it's worth it for the photography ..... Also the Tablelands waterfall drive loop is brilliant -again, it's a day trip on it's own but great for the photography.
    Hope to see some of your photos

    stony creek in cairns has some great spots - a lot less people than crystal cascades too

    behana gorge, josephine falls and the boulders are on the drive to paronella park if you are driving down

    palmerston section of wooranooran national park has some great waterfalls close to the hiway and a canopy boardwalk, links in nicely with the millaa millaa falls circuit and the curtain fig tree.
