CAPE YORK – DAY 9 – WEIPA Rest Day

We had a mine tour at 8.30. We went to the  Andoon mine, we saw belly dumpers and tippers digging up the bauxite which is what they make aluminium out of, it looks like small red pebbles.

We crossed the largest single lane bridge in the southern hemisphere to get there.

We bought some lunch and went out to a place called Red Beach, where we saw lots of large crocodiles on the sand bank. One of them caught a bird and ate it.

After watching them for a while I got my fishing rod out to see if I could catch anything..nope, but we did see a baby croc only 10m away from us.

We saw a Blue Winged Kookaburra at our campsite.

We went out to tea at the Albatross resort with all the others on our trip, it was nice.
