This TR might be a bit different, but at least you get to meet Cassius. Maximum altitude is about 2 meters, but we did walk around at minus one meter.

Here is how you get to the trailhead:


A trip in a glass-bottomed boat revealed Giant clams & sea turtles and manta rays. (I don't think you can get any good pictures here with only an iPhone):



Note the architecture - the pointy tops are designed to deter Drop Bears:



After walking around the island on the beach, I developed a silent migraine. It is a fairly rare medical condition - a migraine without the pain.
That's OK by me. The cure is either to lie down in a dark room for an hour, or sit for a while with one of these:



Green Island is the only Great Barrier Reef cay with rainforest:



Some local party animals:



Lady freshwater crocs have excellent, even dainty table manners:



Or not! The crash of the jaws closing is really attention-grabbing:



This bloke is Cassius, the largest crocodile in captivity:



Didn't see Nemo on the reef, he was hiding in the aquarium:

Pretty cool! Were those crocs near the Daintree river near Cairns/Port Douglass and the GBR?

The MarineLand Melanesia is on green Island, that is where Cassius lives.
