We then returned to the ferry and drove into Daintree Village itself. A lovely little place, where we had some lunch at the Daintree General Store, a combined restaurant, newsagent, post office, general store and travel/trip agents...!!! Only in Australia, ehh...? I had a Crocodile Burger, which tasted a bit like soft chicken. I so wanted to say "G’day mate, gimme a crocodile burger, and make it snappy"..
After topping our tanks up we headed off, back towards Port Douglas, to our final stop of the day at Mossman Gorge. Luckily they have recently done a lot of eco friendly work here, to allow easier and safer access to the rainforest and the two rivers that shaped the gorge. A Swing Suspension Bridge has been erected and a two kilometre walk has been created through the forest itself. The two rivers are amazing, with fast flowing water cascading over the massive rocks and boulders. We decided to do the walk, it was great, but by the end of it we felt more like it was a 20k walk, not just a 2k one. It was very humid, and to say we were all perspiring is a bit of an understatement! That was our day pretty much done, so it was back to the apartment for a meal of all the left over grub in the fridge... yum, yum...!!! We then did our packing, ready for another early start in the morning!
