Day 44 – Daintree Rainforest & Mossman Gorge

DSC_0002 - Copy

After arriving back into Cairns from our dive trip, feeling slightly wobbly on our feet (what is with that?! You feel unsteady on your legs the whole time at sea, and then you step onto solid unmovable ground again, and you feel like you are being constantly pushed over by an invisible force).

Anyway land sickness aside, we headed onwards to Port Douglas where we would be spending that night. It was merely just an overnight stop for us on our way up to Cape Tribulation, but after waking up to a pretty, quiet little town, we both wished for a little longer to explore. But plans were made and we needed to get on the road so after a quick pick-me-up coffee at the nicest little place (Origin Espresso – honestly one of the best espressos I’ve had, ever!), we headed towards Mossman Gorge National Park for a walk. We had read online that the gorge is a great swimming spot and so we came equipped with swimming costumes and towels, but unfortunately the weather wasn’t tempting us and we decided against it.DSC_0008

We did have a lovely walk through the National Park though and saw some amazing trees. We’ve done some great walks here in Australia many of which I have mentioned on here, and we have tried to capture images of the landscape and plant life so we can look back and remember just how incredible it is.

^^ Some of these trees are just enormous in size. They really do make you gawp just staring up at them towering over everything around you ^^DSC_0046
