From Cairns we headed north past fields of sugar cane until we came to the Daintree River. The car ferry is the only way to get to Cape Tribulation on sealed road. Crossing the Daintree River was like entering an ancient world. The mountains and dense tropical rain forest tumble down mountains and spill onto sandy shore lines often reaching out to touch the coral sea. Although we have travelled through the wet tropics of North Queensland for some weeks now, we were quite unprepared for the wonderfully unique world of the Daintree Rainforest. I don’t believe our photos can possibly convey how truly breathtaking this place is.
