Etty Bay - near Cairns

Etty Bay is on the edge of a rain forest which is national park. Etty Bay is 110kms Sth of Cairns. It is a secluded, small, sheltered bay, great for swimming and kayaking. No internet, phone or TV but a beautiful spot and small caravan park. We could hear the ocean from our van here and had a good view until people parked in front of us. It has 4 cassowaries which regularly wander through the caravan park and beach.  We got to see one close up, which was a highlight after only seeing signs before. We would have liked to stay longer in this lovely spot. The Kiosk has yummy fish & chips with great view of the beach and ocean.  The beach & kiosk was damaged by cyclone Yasi 2 years ago in 2011, but now has been repaired.
