24th Christmas Eve - we set off at 8am for a 9 hour drive to Port Douglas, The drive to port douglas was beautiful, one side were high rugged mountains and the other side was miles of beautiful coastline. Port Douglas is the closest town to the great barrier reef. We set up camp in a powered site and had THE worse night sleep ever!! It was 35'C and we do not have a fan or air con in the back of the van so it was impossible to sleep. We thought about staying in a posh hotel down the road just to get a good nights sleep with the air con.
P.s we now have a fan so hoping for a better sleep tonight,
26th Boxing Day- After a much better night sleep we went on the Draintree Rainforest tour where we had a guided walk through mossman gorge, a river cruise along the Daintree river, a 4x4 trip to causeway falls which is nestled in the rainforest where we swam with fish and turtles. Our tour guide took us to a homemade ice cream shop and had the nicest ice cream we have ever had Lee had mango coconut and i had passionfruit and banana Yum Yum!!
Now we are off to our final destination which is Cairns, this is where we fly home from.
See you all soon xxx
