To reach Cape Tribulation we need to cross the Daintree River by Ferry
ee Vehicles queue to board the Ferry
If you are thinking of paddling across… think again!
The Ferry approaches the shore
and gets closer.
As you can see, it is capable of carrying quite heavy vehicles.
This “River Train” offers tourists a scenic tour of the Daintree River
On the ferry deck there is no room to spare.
From a lookout at the side of the road we can see the mouth of the Daintree River.

At the Discovery Centre we get to “discover” the Rain Forest
by walking though it on a series of walkways
that allow us to experience the plants and their foliage
and at different levels.
A handset is available to listen to a commentary as we go.
We start in the very depths of the forest
and start to climb upwards
towards the top.
We climb through the canopy
higher and higher
We break through
until we are looking across its top.
Looking down on the trees
and into their branches
as we make our way down again
towards the bottom
until we reach the forest floor,
to find a tangle of roots and vines.
After all that climbing we seek refreshment
which we enjoy sitting out in the sun
surrounded by orchards of exotic fruits.
A true Garden of Eden.
The road continues North through the rain forest
As they meander towards the sea.
At the end of the road
is a walk through the mangrove swamp to the beach.
Fortunately we are above the mud
Buttress roots hold the trees firmly in the mud.
The mangrove roots are exposed by the receding tide.
We break through to the beach
and look North towards Cape Tribulation.
