Yaaaay, we got our van! We’re heading down the east coast hippy style! Oh, wait, we’re going north first. Ignoring weather reports of heavy rain we were just happy to be on the road again (locals said it would be “just a splash of water”, and we would be safe if we returned by the weekend. Did we know they meant “splash” as in the Walibi Splash).
Cape Tribulation is the one place where the rain forest meets the Great Barrier Reef. Unfortunately, due to the weather we couldn’t really see the reef and its colours, but even in the wet season Cape Trib is astoundingly beautiful.
We didn’t really fancy putting our towels down here though.
Daintree National Park
There are nice walks around the Daintree National Park, and the jungle in the wet season is just spectacularly green.
Me Tarzan, you Jane
If you’re in the neighbourhood, make sure to stop at Mason’s store to jump in the watering hole! There’s a rope… From now on, I go through life as Jane… ;-)
