    Daintree Rainforest Day 2

    May 11 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    What a beautiful place is the Daintree. "Where the rainforest meets the reef" is its slogan. So true!

    I took a long walk yesterday afternoon on the Dubuji Boardwalk, winding up on Myall Beach (don't get close to the water!). I saw loads of orange-footed scrubfowl (no picture). They're about the size of the guineas my grandfather had, but brown with a greenish iridescent breast and bright orange legs and feet.

    After the walk, I stopped by the local store for an ice cream and ran into their pet peacock Eugene guarding the entry. He finally let me in.

    As I was walking back to the lodge, the bats began to come out. They're almost as big as the ones in Okinawa. What a racket they make!

    Walking back to the cabin after dinner, I almost stepped on several cane toads. I'm hoping they were what was making all the rustling noise in the undergrowth. I walked back pretty quickly and didn't stop to investigate.

    This morning, I had breakfast and checked out, then I took another walk. I popped out on Cape Tribulation Beach where the high tide comes right up to the trees. Luckily, the tide was out leaving a huge swathe of flat sand that appeared croc free. I definitely didn't get close enough to the water to find out.

    I also walked around the boardwalk again in one last attempt to see a cassowary. I found scat, but no bird. Poop. (Pun intended 😉.)

    Now, I'm walking to the lodge's cafe for lunch before the van picks me up to go back to Port Douglas.

    So long [for now] and thanks for all the fish. ✌️

    (I forgot to take a selfie.)

    On our way back

    July 13, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Next stop - Cape Tribulation

    There are two diffrent ways to get to cooktown.
    First we were choosing the way which was kind of a desert. There was a nice flat street which you had to follow over 100km. Only straight..

    On out way back - we were choosing obviously the wrong way..
    There we go.
    We drove through the rainforest where lots of different grounds were waiting for us.

    - sand ground
    - stone ground
    - water ground

    Some rivers cutting across the 'highway' 😀
    First we went through without problems.
    We had around 4 rivers which we were crossing. But the last one - was nearly a sea !
    Anyway - we thought that we could manage that one aswell.

    See the result - like daddy said "Were you trying to change your car into a submarine ?"
    - Yes we did, but it doesn't worked.

    Von Mareeba in den Regenwald

    October 19, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Nachdem wir heute Morgen einen Job angenommen haben, den wir am Montag starten werden, wollten wir die Tage bis dahin nochmal nutzen und uns den Regenwald nördlich von Cairns anschauen.
    Auf dem Weg dahin hielten wir an einem kleinen Fluss mit klarem Wasser zum Schwimmen und später am Wonga beach, wo wir noch zwei Kokosnüsse mitnahmen 😁
    Nachdem wir mit einer Fähre einen Fluss überquerten fuhren wir noch einige Kilometer bergige Straßen, bevor wir im PK,s Jungle Village ankamen, wo wir dann unweit vom Strand campten :)

    Heute machten wir einen Tagesausflug von Cairns zum Cape Tribulation, dort ist die einzige Stelle wo der Regenwald auf das Reef trifft. Wir haben uns da einige Aussichtspunkte angesehn und lecker gegessen.

    Cape Tribulation Nationalpark

    Habe heute eine Tagestour in einen der schönsten Nationalparks gemacht! 😊
    Komm aus dem Staunen gar nicht mehr raus! 😍🐊🦀🦂
    Hatte sogar einen Aborigine als Tour-Guide! Hätte ihm (George) stundenlang zuhören können...

    Die Croc-Tour war leider eher enttäuschend... Aber war trotzdem schön :)Read more

    Cape Tribulation

    April 30, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Ocean Safari Lodge - So günstig hatten wir bisher noch nicht gecampt, 20$ die Nacht ohne Strom.

    Wir schliefen in Anna's Zelt, damit das Roof-Top-Zelt nicht nass wird. Es war eine sehr gute Entscheidung, da es die 2 Nächte dauerhaft geregnet hatte. Somit konnten wir das Zelt zusammenfalten und in einen Plastiktüte verstauen.

    Was eine tolle Sache an dem Ort war, es gab weder Internet noch Handyempfang. Somit konnte Andrea ihr Buch lesen und Tobi sein Fußballspiel genüsslich zocken. 🙂

    Wir erkundeten die Umgebung, gingen einen schönen Pfad quer durch den Regenwald spazieren und genossen die teilweise durchkommenden Sonnenstrahlen am Meer. Wir entdeckten 2 kleine Wasserschiggis, die sich auf einem Baumstamm bequem gemacht hatten und ein Cassowary lieg uns über den Weg. Wir hofften darauf, wilde Krokodile zu sehen, dieser Wunsch ging uns nicht in Erfüllung. Am Strand haben wir Sandkringel entdeckt.
