From here we will sail to Darwin which is 1000 miles or so from here. After we leave Cairns we will not see another town until we round Cape York. We will be sailing near the Great Barrier Reef which closes with shore as we head north making navigation a bit more tenuous. We will make stops at various capes and islets and the famed Lizard Island but we will be out there hanging off the edge of the world as we make our way to the top of Australia. It will take us about three weeks to reach Darwin. See you in the Northern Terri-tree (as they pronounce it) mate. Below, a few pictures from our trip since Hamilton Island.
