Nothing like a bit of rain to add spice to the first off-bitumen drive of the trip. After a reasonably short wait for the ferry to cross the Daintree River, we made a stop for a rainforest stroll on the Jindalba Boardwalk, but not before a siting of a cassowary and her youngster.
Other sights included the Daintree Tea Plantation, paperbarks along Thornton Beach and three decent water crossings.
My personal highlight was the beach at Cape Tribulation where the rainforest meets the sea.
We are in Cooktown for a couple of nights hoping to see the clouds clear tomorrow.
