There was no mountain but plenty of smiles when Marayke and Mum Marion headed to Mt Suprise, a 6 hour drive from Cairns. Marayke spoke at the community Australia Day ceremony, and assisted with presenting the Australia Day Awards. She was suprised to discover that the mt in the towns name stands for mining town, not mountain. Marayke and marion visited the Terrestrial exhibition in nearby Georgetown where they learnt about the regions rich mineral history, and Marayke even scored a ride in the mayors porche!
