3195. Rainy Day in Cairns Historical Museum

OK, the Museum in the rainy day. Actually this was a good combination – I always love local history museums in the places we visit – but in the good weather it is often thought as a waste of precious travel time – to go a museum instead of just going to the nature. But it is heavy rain today!

Thus the museum and a bit of Cairns history. Website of the museum is here. As far as I got - this is to to the larger extent the effort of local enthusiasts who made a charity Cairns Historical Society, and finally developed it into the museum stage.

It was initially a place inhabited by Aboriginal Australians, – and then named The Trinity Bay by Mr. Cook.
