The hills are alive with the sound of bull dozers.

I live here and one thing I wish is to preserve the Cairns slopes/hillsides from being ruined by housing.
This area has unique tropical forest walking tracks and also very beautiful to see from every area in Cairns.Most hotels and other accommodation has a view of these mountains and water views.
Locals want to save them for future generations so they can enjoy the natural tropical beauty that Cairns offers.
The photo below was taken from Freshwater and highlights the houses creeping up the slopes of Redlynch in the shadow of North Peak.
