Striped Possums seen mating

Matt, one of Mason's Tours guides, has recently broken his Striped Possum drought in specatacular fashion!
On the estuary section of his walk he heard nioses similar to the calls of Flying Foxes, but closer inspection revealed that it was two Striped Possums mating.
The group was able to watch the two possums for some time. It was a lucky sighting as they are more commonly seen in the winter months.

The photo was supplied by a guest on one of our nightwalks

Mason's Cafe Opens

Mason's Tours are pleased to announce the opening of Mason's Cafe. The cafe has been operational for some years but was previously leased and traded as Myall Creek Takeaway. Run by Sharon Mason, the cafe serves burgers, fish and chips, sandwiches,wraps, shakes, fresh juices and much more. Sharon is commited to having daily specials, and offerings so far have included Thai Fish Cakes, Salt and Pepper Calamari, Lasagne (including a yummy vego version), and Chicken Pasta salad.
Mason's Cafe sells Tichum Creek Coffee, grown on the Atherton Tableland, west of Cairns. 'Mario's Blend' is delicious, and the ground coffee can be purchased on site if you wish to take some home. Local Daintree Tea is also served, and likewise can be purchased on site.
All cakes and biscuits served on Mason's 4WD Tours are prepared in the Cafe, and being freshly baked are proving popular. Ann Mason has trained Sharon to make all the old favourites such as Banana and Walnut cake so look out for the family recipes on your next Mason's Tour.
Sharon has also begun serving more decadent home made cakes at the cafe!
Mason's Cafe also can cater to groups who want lunch as a one off or on a regular basis. Please phone 40980016 to order. Our Green season hours will be 1030 to 1600, but this may vary so ring to check if you are not sure.
