Beautiful Tropical Summer Sunset
This is Quaids Dam or Mitchell Lakes just a 15 minute drive from Sweetwater and a wonderful spot for all keen photographers, bird-watchers and nature lovers. At this time of year it is constantly changing, recent rain has boosted the water levels and bird-watching there is simply a delight. The colours in the early mornings and late afternoon as the sun sets behind the hills in the background are just stunning. Tropical North Queensland has everything and this time of year is no exception. You have to brave a few bugs and maybe some tropical rain but the colours are heavenly, the landscapes are amazing and the birds, reptiles and animals just come to life. Sweetwater is the perfect base for your nature based tropical holiday. Our private luxury Tablelands retreat in the moutains of the Port Douglas Hinterland is perfectly placed for exploring the best the region has to offer and just a 90 minute drive from Cairns International Airport.
