Driving south from Cairns, the road passes mile after mile after mile of sugar cane fields. No other crops — it’s the most monocultural farmland I’ve ever seen. So the first picture is basically what we saw for around 1000 km or so.
Still, this being Australia, you’re never far from a pretty beach (even if the crocodiles and jellyfish prevent any form of swimming).
Lonely roads also make for easy stops to snap a sunset —especially one as good as this.
