Year 12 Geography Excursion to Cairns

Inaburra's Year 12 Geographers were in Far North Queensland on a field trip last week. They have been investigating two Australian ecosystems at risk: the Daintree and the Great Barrier Reef. Then travelling south of Cairns they visited the Pacific Coast eco banana farm (you might know these bananas as the red tip ones) where Frank, Diane and Alana explained how their farm was operated. Students finished their four-day field trip looking at the way the suburbs of Cairns have taken over the sugar cane fields. They had the opportunity to meet with developers and the local Council who are overseeing this change in Cairns.
