Chuulangun, Cape York Peninsula

Travelling around Cape York Peninsula.......
Chuulangun Airstrip

The Banded Cockroach, unlike most Cape York native cockroaches, prefers to scavenge during the day.

The Bush Hibiscus in abundance during the wet season.

The pristine upper tributaries of the Wenlock River draining westward from the Great Dividing Range mixing with the tannin colouring from the lowland wet season swamps.

Flynn Needs your Support

Local Cairns resident Flynn is 8 years old and due to his extremely premature birth and the significant brain injury sustained from it, Flynn now faces many long term challenges. He is the eldest brother of Patrick, aged 5 and Tess, aged 1. It is hoped to raise enough money to proceed with Stem Cell Therapy sometime later this year, and also to assist with the ongoing costs of Speech Therapy, Physio and Occupational Therapy that Flynn still desperately needs. You can learn more by reading Flynn’s Story below.

**PLEASE SHARE** Economists insist that recovery is at hand, yet unemployment remains high, real estate values continue to sink, and governments stagger under record deficits.

The expansionary trajectory of industrial civilization is colliding with non-negotiable natural limits.
