We're now on the next leg of our Australian adventure and for the next few months our home is Cardwell, Queensland. It's a small fishing town in the far north with a budding tourism sector. A few years ago it was hit hard by Cyclone Yasi that left the town devastated (the size of the cyclone was geographically larger than all of Great Britain!). Today, this picturesque town is building itself back up and is well on its way to becoming a staple in the touristic landscape of FNQ.
We arrived on Sunday, Nov 22 and I soon discovered that the town hosts a local market by the jetty on the last Saturday of every month. Called the Cardwell Jetty Market, it showcases local arts and crafts, toys, clothes, housewares and even homemade pies and preserves. The upcoming market being the last for the year as the organizers close up shop over the wet season (the season which brings along heavy rain and the possibility of cyclones). I decided to jump on the chance and showcase ENARMOUR in Cardwell and maybe help some of the locals out with their Christmas shopping ;) The amount of visitors wasn't very great, as most tourists don't come up north during the incredibly hot and humid summer while a lot of the locals leave to the South of Australia to escape the heat.
The ENARMOUR stall was still a success! The designs turned many heads and a few lucky daughters, granddaughters and girlfriends will soon be sporting some unique bracelets, necklaces and body chains.
