Oct 5, 2012 - Daintree National Park

Daintree National Park: 5 - 9 October 2012 The Daintree National Park was our next destination after Cooktown. We decided to take a bit of a risk and travel south via the "Bloomfield Track" which links Cooktown with Cape Tribulation through stunning rainforest. The track is recommended for experienced 4WD's & is unsuitable for trailers - woops! The creek crossings were straightforward as it was the end of the dry season but what tested Sean's driving skills ( and the trucks capability) were the 2 steep climbs and descents on very narrow...

Dec 10, 2007 - Daintree National Park... and more crocs!

Our first stop on our Daintree tour was Flagstaff hill lookout point with a great view down the Cairns coastline. We continued on to take a short cruise along the Daintree river. We managed to spot one croc and got to see lots of fruit bats and other birds. It was a nice cruise and great weather. Our stop for lunch was the Daintree Tea House which was great. It was a very tasty meal with lots of fresh fruit. What was great as well was that the owner of the resteraunt came out and gave a talk on all of the fruit used with the meal and this...
