Drove as far north as we could before checking out the lookouts, beaches and boardwalks in Cape Tribulation. It was quite a cloudy day so wasn't as spectacular as it could be, but it was still stunning. Lots of walking and driving and places to explore, and no shortage of beauty.

Everyone has a place that they love. If anyone ever asked me to close my eyes and think of paradise I think of Cape Tribulations beach. Its incredible, beautiful, warm and timeless. must on anybody's bucket list.

As we were staying at Port Douglas it only seemed right that we should go on a trip to the Daintree National Park. It is after all the oldest rain forest in the world, with all sorts of statistics including an annual rainfall of 6 metres - that's quite a lot of rain even for someone who lives in the UK.

There are trees everywhere all fighting for survival, we first were taken to Mossman Gorge and went for the forest walk. It was very pretty with lots of photo opportunities. There are some lovely places were you can get down close to the river, the water is crystal clear and you could count the stones on the river bed.You have to walk over the wobbly bridge and have a photo taken.

On this particular tour we were taken on to a secluded spot for a bar b que lunch. Quite honestly if it was not for the driver you would not know it was there. The food was great as was the free fruit juices and wine, and a welcome cup of tea at the end. The really good thing was on the way through the trees we actually came across a wild cassowary which I am told is quite a rare thing to see. Most strange bird, like a throw back from the dinosaur era.

WE then traveled on toward the Daintree river for a second time the first time we crossed it on a ferry, this time we were going to have a boat ride up the river spotting crocodiles.
On the way we stopped off at an ice cream factory, they had some interesting flavors of ice cream like Wattleseed. We had to go slow at one point as there was a fallen tree across half of the road, they have so much rain that the ground just lets go of the tree roots..

We got to the river and boarded the boat we set off up the river (which is extremely wide) we did spot I think it was three crocs in the end, although you have to look very hard, they blend in so well on the banks.

When we got off of the boat there was time for more refreshments before we started the journey back to Port Douglas. The good thing about the tour was at each stop there was a wash room.
I would not recommend this trip to wheel chair bound people or for people who have difficulty walking.

Nice day and pleasant trip, something you have to see for yourself although if I was to return I would not repeat the trip.

Fantastic to go so far north on the East coast of Australia. Beautiful scenery in good weather but not great in the rain. If this is your first visit recommend paying the extra and taking a proper tour so you hear the information about the area. If there are many of you it's cheaper by car - get a good map of the area from the tourist broucher places so you know where know where to stop.

There are some short walks in the national park, but they reveal little and you can come away disappointed.

Do a couple of things outside the national park like a Cooper Creek Wilderness walk and a Daintree River cruise and you'll get more out of the rainforest I think.
