Fantastic, plethora of information, based on a broad range of factual topics from the arrival of the first aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples over 40,000 years ago, their shields with the depicted return boomerang on top. Coral reef, the environmental damage and reef conservation. Cairns heritage buildings and architecture and infamous monuments of the likes of Dr Koch who was the first to discover the link between Malaria and mosquito and patented the first treatment consisting of a mixture of quinine and diluted sulphuric acid........the list goes on.......oh, and I can't forget George Lawson, otherwise known as 'Yorkey' a bech-de-mer fisherman from you Yorkshire UK, who had his hand blown off whilst fishing with dynamite and then treated by the aforementioned Dr Koch, who amputated it and attached a hook......but the story does not end there...............
I thoroughly enjoyed my guided walk around the historic centre of Cairns. Peter's commentary of early adventurers and settlers, life in town and on the bay, old buildings of significance, the war years, made Cairns' past come alive. A great way to learn about this fascinating town's history.
Peters knowledge of the history of Cairns was fantastic. His enthusiasm kept us engaged all tour. The tour has given us a real appreciation for the history of the area and has enriched our holiday. The walk is easy and wheelchair friendly, anyone can do this tour and it’s well worth it.
Definitely worth doing if you have a spare 90 minutes in Cairns. As a born and bred North Queenslander, I was surprised at how little I knew about the region’s history. Good to see how Peter also incorporates local First Australian history and landmarks in his tour.
Loved the tour we did in mid May. Peter was very knowledgeable, I've been to Cairns before but knew very little about the history. From where the best coffee is available to colonial Cairns, Peter knew it all. Would highly recommend the tour for locals as well as tourists.
