Cape Tribulation

Cape Tribulation

Took a day trip away from Cairns and headed up north to Cape Tribulation, which is a couple of hours drive away. It takes a bit of getting used to for me but Aussies think nothing of a 2 hour drive to get to the beach. I guess if Ayr or Portabello beaches were a bit nicer and the weather in Scotland a bit warmer then perhaps we wouldn't mind driving for hours to reach a beautifully secluded, unspoilt and fairly deserted expanse of clear white sand and gorgeous clear blue sea. Instead we get amusement arcades, fairground rides and masses of pink lobsters in Speedos packed beneath stone promenades...

In addition we went crocodile hunting along the Daintree River (saw 2 adults about 5 metres in size and a couple of smaller ones about 3 years old) but I let them go after catching them Steve Irwin style ;-).

Next we visited Mosman Gorge with a great waterfall and a cool swingbridge going across a section of the falls, very Indiana Jones!
