A wonderful audio tour of the forest gives you two perspectives, from an Australian of European descent and an Australian of Aboriginal descent. It was awesome to hear all the fascinating facts and stories about the Daintree from both perspectives, and you can't help but walk away wiser. Plus the coffee was great too!

We left Cairns and headed for Cape Tripulation, thatīs as far north as we are going on the coast with our rig.
After the ferry cross the Daintree river we entered the jungle.
We stayed at "Jungle Lodge" and payed 20$ á night.
Kulki beach was fantastic, nice white sand and hardly any people. The only …
Bus interior enthusiasts will want to go on this tour over and over again. The slightly mad looking 4 wheel drive converted truck which picked us up at 7.15am missed out on any suspension upgrade so we had a full workout just by sitting in the seats for the 8 hour bus time of the 11 hour trip. By the time we had picked up about 10 or so couples at …
To get to Daintree National Park, we had to go on a ferry across the Daintree River. The ferry was pulled on a cable from one side of the river to the other.
We stayed in a van park, where I saw a hungry saltwater crocodile being fed. Her name was Doris and she acted like she hadn't been fed for a week. After that we got to feed kangaroos …
So today is the day we finally get to have a home of our own again, well kind of, in the form of a sweet campervan. woohooo. The hotel we stayed at the night before was just a couple blocks from the rental office, so the early morning pickup went smoothly. We were shown around the van and how everything worked. It seemed spacious enough with all …
No vacation in the tropics would be complete without a visit or two to the local rain forest. But it's not everywhere you can find a rain forest that is not only the oldest forest in the world, but also the only site on Earth where two World Heritage Sites touch each other: at Cape Tribulation, the Daintree Rainforest extends right down to the …
We drove to the ferry (barge) to cross the Daintree River to Cape Tribulation you drive on one side and few minutes later you drive off on the other side of the river. We
were surprised that there are houses, farms and lots of various businesses there in a national park. It is beautiful rainforest, beaches and blue water. We went to the …
Admittedly my last entry was long, but do forgive me for that – I had 5 hours to blow at the airport! This should be considerably shorter!
We arrived at the Cairns airport yesterday afternoon as expected and rented our car. I took a deep breath and off I went, chanting "left, left, left!" Another thing that is strange as far as …
On day 5 of their trip Down Under, President Obama and his family took a short drive from Cairns to Daintree National Park. There they went hiking in the park and went on a river cruise. While hiking, the family admired the rainforest which was teaming with life with a wide array of fauna from cassowaries to swamp wallabies. The river cruise was …
