Beautiful Cardwell, North Queensland ,   not only  has magnificent views , it  even has  an op  shop from which, just before it was due to close for the day, was discovered  and bought  a  magnificently illustrated   book ,  Secrets of the Island An Oral History of Tasmanian Surfing , by Emily Davey,Tassurf Publishing, printed in China by Everbest . Homemade vanilla  slices  sold  by  a bespoke  bakery  are  also  tasty. Then  there is the art gallery with a  wide range  of  locally  produced  items , including  paintings  of  Curlews . In   English,  German and  Chinese  , there is  a  warning  sign  about  crocs  on  the  beachfront .
