The ideal location for relaxing time out, Port Douglas is an easy-going tropical paradise with a small friendly village atmosphere and sophisticated creature comforts. 
The warm reef waters of the Coral Sea, the glorious palm fringed sands of Port Douglas Four Mile Beach, and the crystal clear creeks of Mossman Gorge are the place to refresh, restore and revitalise both body and mind. Seductive, balmy days slip seamlessly into tropical evenings under a canopy of clear starry skies. The sights, sounds and tastes of the tropical environment are a feast for the senses; the stunning array of nature and wildlife is awe-inspiring.

The Port Douglas region has become increasingly aware of the value and uniqueness of its natural environment over the past decade. As a result, ecotourism products which focus on the area's pristine World Heritage rainforests, marine environment and ecosystems are now a major component of the Port Douglas and Daintree tour industry. 

Ecotourism balances the requirements of tourism and conservation, and has been defined by Ecotourism Australia as "ecologically sustainable tourism with a primary focus on experiencing natural areas that fosters environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation".

Ecotourism in Port Douglas offers an authentic ecotourism experience. This includes interacting with the local population, learning meaningful information about the locations you visit, and leaving the lightest possible footprint on the environment as you depart. Port Douglas tour operators are firmly committed to sustainable tourism and are licensed and accredited to conduct operations in national parks and other sensitive protected areas. 

 English: Port in Port DouglasImage via Wikipedia
They have a high degree of local knowledge, employ local people, and support their local economy and community.

There are ample opportunities for outdoor activities in Port Douglas, ranging from walks and safaris through the breathtaking pristine Daintree and Cape Tribulation Rainforests, horse riding, river cruises and white water rafting to swimming, diving, snorkelling, fishing and sailing on the the reef and waterways. 

Tours are available across the Daintree to Cape Tribulation, and further afield to the Mareeba Wetlands, the Tropical Tablelands, Cairns and Kuranda. Other local attractions include various historical sites, weekend markets, world-class restaurants, nightlife, a fruit winery, indigenous cultural experiences, 4WD safari adventures, world class golf courses, spas, aerial tours by seaplane, helicopter & hot-air balloon, and outdoor cinema and theatre.

At 140 million years old, the Daintree National Park contains the oldest living rainforest on earth. The Park is divided into three main areas, Daintree, Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge. Daintree National Park lies between Mossman Gorge and the Daintree River, is known for its long stretch of lush tropical rainforest, and is home to unique bird life and crocodiles.

Cape Tribulation is where tropical rainforest and coral reef meet in a scenic coastal setting north of the Daintree River. The area is home to glorious sandy beaches and mangroves environments abounding in wildlife viewing. 
Mossman Gorge is a steep-sided valley on the Mossman River containing lush tropical rainforest and crystal clear creeks. An excellent location for viewing birdlife and other wildlife. Guided walks visiting Aboriginal heritage sites are provided by members of the Kuku Yalanji Mossman Gorge Community.

Great Barrier Reef Travel Promotions By Marty Ware

Welcome to my video "Great Barrier Reef Travel Promotions By Marty Ware"
I wanted to share this video on this blog to show you what you get if you need to promote your Great Barrier Reef business venture!
Watch the video I am sure you will be impressed!
Click the Link to Visit the website to find out more now!

Are you looking to "View The Great Barrier Reef In A Mini Submarine?"
Looks like a great deal of fun and its yellow so it matches to Beetles Song!
I also provided a video for you to see too!

Submarine in Great Barrier Reef
This video was shot from a submarine at the outer Great Barrier Reef, 90 minutes into the ocean.

TOURISTS on the Great Barrier Reef will be able to get a fish-eye view of the marine life with the introduction of new mini-submarines.
Great Barrier Reef Submarines has begun offering the experience at Fitzroy Island, a 45 minute ferry ride from Cairns in Queensland.

Two passengers and a pilot can fit in the 4m wide, 1.8m high mini-submarine, which was designed in Canada.

 English: A variety of corals form an outcrop o...Image via Wikipedia

Passengers enter the cockpit through an opening in the back of the hull guided by a safety diver and met are inside by the pilot.

Once inside they sit on window seats either side of the cockpit cabin.

"The cabin is cosy but it's surprisingly roomy for three people,'' Great Barrier Reef Submarines owner Richard Chapman said.

"You duck dive into it and sit up to your waist in water but your upper body is in fresh air.

English: False Clown Anemonefish Great Barrier...Image via Wikipedia
"You're in a bubble of air.''

While the mini-submarine is capable of going as deep as 40m, you only have to go 6m to get to the bottom of the reef in the area it is used.

Passengers have to equalise when the submarine dives or ascends, similar to scuba diving.

Tours will be conducted during the day and at night and cost $150 for 30 minutes.

A pocket of air is trapped inside the cockpit of the sub, like an upside-down cup traps air when pushed underwater.

The air is replenished from the scuba tank supply.

The IVC Corp Resort Submarine travels at a maximum speed of 7.5km per hour.

It works on an ambient pressure design, so the air pressure inside the sub is the same as the water pressure outside.

No certified pressure hull is required because there is no danger of the hull collapsing as no differential pressure is being exerted on the hull by the water.

This allows for the use of a light and durable fibreglass hull.

The submarine is driven by electric thruster propellers which move the sub forward, backwards and up and down, which makes it easier to manoeuvre than traditional ballast tank and propeller submarines.

Great Barrier Reef Partition Success!

English: A variety of corals form an outcrop o...Image via Wikipedia Great Barrier Reef Partition Success!  Good news isn't it!
I just received this email from Getup and wanted to share it with my readers!
For those who signed this partition thanks you, because without each and everyone of you it couldn't of been a success!
Read the email from Getup below

Dear Marty
Just a quick email to update you on the campaign to save the Great Barrier Reef. Amazingly 74,938 people have signed the petition. Thanks to Lincoln, it has been delivered to the UNESCO head offices in Paris - your voice is being heard!

Lincoln is a a GetUp member who now lives in Paris. Lincoln grew up in Adelaide but moved to Tasmania in 1982 to take up the fight to save the Franklin River. He ran The Wilderness Society's legal campaign which ultimately saw a High Court Victory which resulted in the Franklin River being saved. Like the Great Barrier Reef, the Franklin River now has World Heritage status.

Like many people Lincoln rightly thought that the Great Barrier Reef was safe for all time following its protection and was shocked to hear that dredging is now occurring within the World Heritage Area - damaging an already fragile ecosystem.
Deutsch: Tauchen am Great Barrier ReefImage via Wikipedia
That is what motivated him to take action on your behalf. Earlier this week he toured the World Heritage sites along the Banks of the River Seine in Paris, including the Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower and Louvre museum, with a representation of the petition you signed. It was a creative way to make the point that it would be unthinkable to damage those World Heritage sites, yet here in Australia our government is allowing it to occur.

Lincoln then met with senior UNESCO staff to explain how significant the Great Barrier Reef is to Australians and that our community is hoping that UNESCO can step in and stop the dredging of the World Heritage Area.

Click here to read how it went and see the photos!

"I’m thrilled that so many GetUp members signed the petition and feel as passionate as I do about the importance of protecting the Great Barrier Reef from overdevelopment. It’s rekindled my links with the country I love so much." - Lincoln.
 Deutsch: Tauchen am Great Barrier ReefImage via Wikipedia

Stay tuned for next steps on this campaign in 2012.

Thanks for all you do,
Justine, for the GetUp team.

To be honest I was really stoked to receive this email after signing the partition. 
Take care and see you at my next blog post!

Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2012

 Hi and welcome to my blog post "Audi Hamilton Race Week 2012"
If you haven't heard of this race before then I have placed an article below that I found online at
It's great to see these sailing races being promoted for Hamilton Island and I will do my best to cover these events!

Audi Hamilton Island Race Week invitation for superyachts
'Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2012'    Rob Mundle

Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2012 is being held from 17 to 25 August. Sailing superyacht owners are invited to experience the unique on-water and party pleasures that have propelled the event to a point where it is ranked amongst the world’s best regattas.

The Superyacht Division will be a key element in the 2012 series, which will be staged at a venue that is the centrepiece of what is becoming the world’s latest superyacht playground, and Australia’s answer to the Caribbean. 
Hamilton Island, Whitsundays, AustraliaImage via Wikipedia

Yacht owners and their guests will experience an exceptional racing agenda, one which will see them engaged in stimulating competition over courses that take in many of the 68 uninhabited Whitsunday Islands that are in close proximity to Hamilton Island.

Back on shore, the party schedule for Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2012 will set new standards for what is a truly world class regatta. There will be more stunning fashion, delicious food, fine wine, wellbeing and camaraderie throughout the entire week.

Luxury carmaker, Audi, returns as the main partner for Race Week in 2012. The German premium brand will offer a range of high-end events on the island for yacht owners and guests to enjoy. 

Hamilton Island, Queensland with Whitsunday Is...Image via Wikipedia

Such is the status of Audi Hamilton Island Race Week that the America’s Cup made an appearance at the 2011 event, and the man who brought it to the island from San Francisco – America’s Cup legend of 30-years, Tom Ehman – returned home quite amazed by what he had experienced: ‘Audi Hamilton Island Race Week is the best kept secret in the world of yachting. The organisers of any major race week should look at how Hamilton Island makes this more than a sailing event: it’s also a social and cultural happening. Through resources, imagination and hard work it has really come into its own.’

There you have it, even the top legends in the sport give the thumbs up for the yearly race event!
Who knows in the future it just may become a part of Hamilton Island culture!
It sure sound like lots of fun with plenty of fashion and top class food!
Who knows I just may see you there!

In First for Asia, Taiwan to Ban Shark Finning
Taiwan’s luxury hotels have no interest in taking shark-fin soup off the menu. But in the wake of the hotels’ defiance, Taiwan has decided to ban the practice of shark finning!

Web Site Enlace Web link / Taiwan, which has the fourth largest shark-fishing industry in the world, has passed a new law to ban shark-finning. The practice of cutting off the fins and throwing the bodies back into the sea has been...

Fresh off the heels of luxe Hong Kong–based Peninsula Hotels’ banning of the controversial shark-fin ingredient, Taiwan’s swank accommodations have refused to take shark-fin soup off the menu. But it may not matter much, as the island has introduced fishing laws in 2012 to ban shark finning. In doing so, it will be the first Asian government to disallow the practice.

(MORE: Is Shark Fin Slowly Becoming Passé in Hong Kong?)

Though just a tiny island off the coast of China, Taiwan has the fourth largest shark-fin industry in the world. (Hong Kong remains the hub.) The law doesn’t stop fisherman from catching sharks entirely, but it does make it illegal to take the fish back in pieces.

The European Commission, which has “banned” finning in E.U. waters, was also recently forced to issue draft legislation to close a loophole within its own rules. Though the sharks can’t be finned, it does allow fisherman to land shark carcasses and their fins as long as they comply with a strict fin-to-carcass weight ratio. If the revised law passes, all sharks must land with their fins attached similar to the contingencies in the Taiwanese legislation.

Though finning would be in theory banned, at least at sea, there are questions raised. There is nothing to stop fisherman from slicing fins off the carcasses once boats land, though carcass load could help reduce the number of shark fins that are able to pass through the island.

Coral Bleaching (Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority)
Corals live in a partnership with single-celled algae known as zooxanthellae. Coral bleaching occurs when this relationship breaks down under stressful conditions - such as higher-than-normal sea temperatures - and the coral host expels its zooxanthe...

Corals can sense what's coming

Corals respond to heat stresses by killing off some of the cells, while strengthening others.
Image: narvikk/iStockphoto

Australian scientists have thrown new light on the mechanism behind the mass death of corals worldwide as the Earth’s climate warms.

Coral bleaching, one of the most devastating events affecting coral reefs around the planet, is triggered by rising water temperatures. It occurs when the corals and their symbiotic algae become heat-stressed, and the algae which feed the corals either die or are expelled by the coral.

 Table coral of genus Acropora (Acroporidae) at...Image via Wikipedia

There have been seven major bleaching events globally in the past 30 years, the most recent being in 2010 across the Indian Ocean and Coral Triangle. Australia’s Great Barrier Reef has suffered eight events since 1980, the worst being in 2002 when 55% of the total reef area was affected. The frequency of these events appears to be increasing.

Now a team of scientists from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and James Cook University has shown that a complex cascade of molecular signals leading up to the self-inflicted death of corals and their symbiotic algae is triggered as sea water begins to warm.

Working with Acropora corals from the reef at Heron Island, the researchers found the cascade begins at ocean temperatures as much as 3 degrees lower than those normally associated with coral bleaching.

And the process culminates in ‘apoptosis’ or programmed cell-death – a situation in which living organisms (including corals and humans) deliberately destroy their weakened or infected body cells, effectively a form of ‘cell suicide’ or amputation designed to protect the organism as a whole.

 A Blue Starfish (Linckia laevigata) resting on...Image via Wikipedia

“Our results suggest that the control of apoptosis is highly complex in the coral-algae symbiosis and that apoptotic cell death cascades potentially play key roles in tipping the cellular life or death balance during environmental stress prior to the onset of coral bleaching,” explains lead author Dr Tracy Ainsworth.

“It is also clear that this chain reaction responds significantly to subtle, daily changes in the environment and to sea temperatures which were generally thought till now to have little impact on the function of coral and its symbiotic algae.”

Paradoxically, the team’s research identified molecular signals both promoting and discouraging programmed cell-death in the corals.

This has led them to a theory that corals respond to the stresses caused by warming sea water by killing off some of the cells, while strengthening others in order to stage a possible recovery after the hot water has moved off the reef and conditions have returned to normal.

“This would explain why some corals are able to recover quite quickly from a bleaching event, if it has not gone too far.

“It is far too early to speculate, but understanding the recovery process for any living organism is always a big help, as human medicine has constantly demonstrated, Dr Ainsworth says.

“The next step in our research will be to see how we can use this new insight into the processes of coral bleaching to understand their recovery mechanisms. We also need to know more about how this process works at lower temperatures, or under varying temperatures.

“That in turn will lead us to explore ways that coral reef managers and users can perhaps minimise other stresses on the reef in order to give it the best possible chance of recovery from bleaching.”

However the team cautions that “further study of the tissue function and cellular differentiation and recovery processes in coral is needed before this complicated cell death system can be fully understood”.

 A variety of corals form an outcrop on Flynn R...Image via Wikipedia

The team’s paper "Defining the tipping point. A complex cellular life/death balance in corals in response to stress" by Ainsworth TD, Wasmund, K, Ukani L, Seneca F, Yellowlees D, Miller D, and Leggat W is published in the latest issue of Scientific Reports published by Nature.

There you have it!
It's all quite scientific isn't it?
But, hay, it could be great news for our Corals, maybe they are not so doomed after all.
It's nice to see a positive outlook for a change!
But, I do beg all of you please to consider ways to keep limiting your impact on this wonderful planet so other can benefit from what we have in the future!

Hamilton Island Wikipedia

Hamilton Island is the largest inhabited island of the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, Australia. Hamilton Island, like most in the Whitsunday group, was formed as sea levels rose creating numerous drowned mountains that are situated close to the east coast of Queensland, Australia. The island is a popular tourist destination and was featured in the successful "Best Job In The World" promotion.

In late August the island plays host to its annual Hamilton Island Race Week yachting festival, in which more than 150 yachts from across Australia and New Zealand gather for a week of races around the islands. 'Whitehaven Day' is when the yachts descend upon Whitehaven beach for a big beach party. However this is only one of many festivals hosted on the island.
