johnno950 - yes i'm being liberal with the descriptions around the few photos I posted - many more meet the descriptions like the gold and coal festival in Clermont ;)
Medel - cheers mate, I can. I have a set of photos too - the exciting thing was the halo kept changing. Video would have been better, but so too would have been a comfortable bike seat! Can't win them all I guess
Thankfully i got lucky with the trip - I got really really wet for half the trip and right up to that morning, Cairns was covered in cloud - thankfully it stayed where it was and the sun rose above it for the critical event. It was 'snowed in' about half an hour after totality again.
