Please be mindful of the mangoes that have fallen from the trees around Cairns.
The birds and bats love them and leave them half eaten or split open making a slippery mess.
October through to 'approx' March is mangoe season and Cairns has hundreds of these wonderful trees.
If you are walking around the Botanical Gardens and the Tanks area then be extra careful as this fruit has dropped onto the stairs and ramps waiting for some unsuspecting visitor to tread on them.
There isn't anything that anyone can do about this until the season is over.
