We very much enjoyed our stay at Le Cher Du Monde. We found it easily and parking is conveniently provided under the hotel. Our room was spacious and having a kitchenette was very convenient, as food anywhere in Australia seems quite expensive compared to US prices, so fixing our own meals helped a bit with the budget. We found the bed comfortable and the air conditioning quite sufficient. The hotel was generally quiet. The only caution I would give is that the shower, at least in our room, is combined with the whirlpool tub, so it is a bit of a climb to get in and out of the tub to get to the shower. There is a grab bar, but it might be difficult for anyone with limited mobility.

Had a wonderfully funny time with Mary,s Friend Maggie and meeting up with all her ...
... back on the road for a quick drive-through look at Port Douglas. We had a look around, stopped at a lookout point with a beautiful view of the coast, and went down to check out the beach, which was as lovely as you'd imagine. We left Port Douglas headed for Mossman Gorge, where you go into the rainforest and can safely swim in the river, which seems to be one of the few bits of water around here that doesn't contain anything that will make you dead. The drive up was beautiful, ...
... wet vegetation will rot and generate the heat needed to incubate the eggs. Only a few of the eggs that hatch will result in adult crocodiles as many predators go after the eggs and baby crocs. You have to admire and respect a creature that has survived the breakup of continents and outlived the dinosaurs basically unchanged.
One exciting moment when Ed's hat went for a swim - but it was retreved with no fatalities. Whew you don't want to be without a hat here!
