Sun and water for us all.

... was a bit ruffled by the slight wind but the smaller streams we also ventured on were so still and quiet.

Crocodiles are very territorial so we were taken to known spots. We saw at least 8 all different sizes. The smallest was 2 years old and about 30cms in length. The largest was a male about 40 years old. We saw some tree snakes and a few bright butterflies but not many birds. The crocs were all sunning themselves ...

We first drove north to Port Douglas which is renowned for its close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef. We also discovered that the shoreline waters are off limits with shark infested waters, "stingers" (or jellyfish, some of which are deadly, such as the Box Jelly Fish) and lots of Crocodiles! So on day one the four of us went on ...

... In a riot of moist greenery much like this, the very first species of flowering plants bloomed while dinosaurs were still alive.Daintree is like a botanical Jurassic Park, hosting plant species so primitive they scarcely differ from their prehistoric ancestors. And while these forests were the point of origin for the world's flowering plants, many species here appear no place else.The lush, dense landscape is but one component ...
