Apologies for the delayed blog but it was out of our control!
This is going to be a long story...
We spent a day touring the Daintree up as far as Cape Tribulation and then the next day at Mossman Gorge before we headed south again. Four relaxing nights at our camp site at the lovely Wonga Beach with the peacocks and the curlews.
So in the end we didn't get as far north as Cooktown. Before crossing the Daintree River on a vehicular ferry, we explored the tiny village of Daintree and had coffee and yummy caramel slice. (We had to get some energy for the big day ahead.)

On Sunday morning we were up bright and early to head north to the Daintree... World Heritage rainforest. The Daintree Discovery Centre is an interesting place that lets you access every level of the Daintree Rainforest from the forest floor

Ian soldiered on and took a photo of the canopy for me. We spent a couple of hours at the centre looking at the displays and particularly enjoying the Gondwana Ghosts
