Matt & Gemma's Honeymoon to Remember travel blog


For a nice holiday, we seem to be having lots of early starts. We were checked out and waiting for our bus by 6.45am. Traveling 300km in total up to the cape tribulation and back.it is called cape Tribulation as when captain cook discovered this area,his ship ran a ground on the Great Barrier Reef,which caused him trouble.he was having a bad time here as another place nearby was named misery bay. Our first stop was Port Douglas,a nice little town with a marina and a lovely little colonial church with a huge window that looks over the sea. 2year waiting list to get married here.Only there for 40 minutes before back on the road heading north. Our next stop was the Mossman Gorge. We did a short walk through the rain forest to the river where we could drink the water.

We arrived in Cape Tribulation for lunch. It was a quick lunch as we only had an hour. We went down the beach, we were the only ones there. It is the only area in the world where two world heritage sites meet. The rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef. We could not paddle due to the risk of crocs.from a safe distance we Just saw a few sting rays and reef sharks in the shallows.

Heading back to Cairns now, we stopped for another quick walk through the rainforest. We wanted it to rain, but just had distant rumbles of thunder instead. After that we stopped off to look at the views across the coastline.

Once back at our hostel,we had a long wait before catching our greyhound bus to Airlie Beach. We had terrential tropical rain for most of the 12 hours we were on the coach.
