Our first stop was Daintree Rain Forest. The tour guide, David is so knowledgeable about the many species of the plant that we encounter. He also very passionate about all the thing that we saw. Once he told us that this red big ant was edible, and so he ate it and some of the tourist in our group ate it too, but not me 🙂 Along the walk he put his shoes off (Yes, literally), and walk across the forest. That’s how natural he is. I think this universe loves him!
The difference between the rain-forest and “other” kind of forest is that the rain-forest has a certain humidity that the moss and other kind of plants growing on the tree trunk. Along the walk, we could see many kinds of unique plant. It felt like we were on a School Group going to a biology outdoor class. Such a fun day it was.
Cape Tribulation Beach
Visiting Mossman Gorge probable the best part of the tour that I love the moss. It was late in the afternoon, the sun was ready to set, and water on the Mossman gorge was warm. And after day full of walks, it was such a perfect closure.
Mossman gorge is in Mossman river, it was flanked in between forest and part of Daintree National Park. What makes it beautiful is that the river is decorated with big rocks and the water is so clear.
Sweeping Cairns City
After getting back from the tour, me and my friend strolled the city. I was pretty surprised with the hype. I was expecting a more quite night in the city.
We walked around the esplanade, the museum, and back to our hostel. It was such a great adventure that day, Not bad Queensland, not bad at all.
