On our drive up to Cape Tribulation, we stopped in Diwan to check out Alexandra Bay Waterfall. It was a good walk to get there and back, not too challenging but nice to stretch our legs and feel the mist off the falls.

The walk to the waterfall started from the back of the Heritage Lodge where for safety reasons they took our names, time of departure and approximate time of return. Nice to know someone is watching your back! Not that the walk is difficult, but incase of a freak accident neither Martin or I wanted to experience our own version of... More
