    ... find out, because as we drove out of the park, there they were...not one, but two, male and female, and a baby! We couldn't believe our good fortune! And, most amazing, the male and female were mating, which probably explains why they didn't run away as we managed to click off tons of (very blurry!) photos. I think my hands were shaking so much from excitement, and the big male was moving around ...

    ... it was starting to feel like a Top Gear test drive! I could hear Jeremy Clarkson saying "who needs a brand spanking new Ferrari when you can have a 15 year-old beaten up Toyota!!!".

    ... the descent ramp the sound of air being pumped into the helmet and bubbling out was quite loud but did not distract from my first underwater view from the helmet. The helmets used are more like the helmets used by astronauts with a large face plate than the old divers' helmets we’ve all seen in movies.

    ... we headed off back to port Douglas, We felt there was more to see on the Daintree so we headed back the next day, something quite magical about the rainforest. Mosmon gorge was next and it was great to see a venture run, owned and governed by the local indigenous people. We spent a few lazy days in port Douglas before heading back to cairns, to take a plane to the Gold Coast to take a holiday from our ...
