Hartleys Crocodile Adventures Celebrates 20 Croctastic Years!
Hartley’s is one of the oldest running tourist attractions in
the Cairns region. The business began in 1934 as a tea house.
Renovated in 1987 by the Freeman family, the zoo remained
at its original site until 2002 when the brand new Hartley’s
Crocodile Adventures opened just down the road from
Hartley’s Creek, delivering authentic crocodile experiences
in a new sustainable eco-attraction

The COUCH Charity Fun Run is part of the 2022 Ironman Cairns Festival.

family, workmates, a group from your sporting club, community organisation
or school to participate for a good cause.
This year the theme is colour, representing a different awareness colour for
various types of cancers. Wear whatever awareness colour you like or wear
them all! Check-in starts at 6.00am, and the fun run is at 7.35am. All proceeds
from this event will be donated to the Cairns Organisation United for Cancer
Health (COUCH), so get involved!
Bowel Cancer Awareness Month
June is Bowel Cancer Awareness Month- Bowel Cancer Australia’s main event
to raise awareness of Australia’s second deadliest cancer, as well as raise funds
for the community-funded charity. The organisation is dedicated to prevention, early diagnosis, research, quality treatment, and the best care for
everyone affected by bowel cancer.
Bowel cancer claims the lives of 101 Australians every week, that’s 5,255 people
a year – but it’s one of the most treatable types of cancer if found early. While the risk of bowel cancer increases significantly with age, the disease doesn’t discriminate. 293 Australians will be diagnosed with bowel cancer this week – 15,206 people a year.
Support Bowel Cancer Awareness Month – register your interest, fundraise and order an awareness pack.
