We arrived in Port Douglas in late afternoon and by the time we settled in our small room it was already getting dark. We had quick wander around and dinner before calling it a night as we had a big day ahead of us - a guided tour to the rainforest and Cape tribulation.
The tour was a great day out (apart from the tour company giving us a wrong pick up time - how annoying it was getting up an hour early!!!) We were together with 2 older couples and our tour guide. First stop was Mossman Gorge which was very busy as it is so close to the town. Next was a trip on a little boat through the crocodile infested Daintree River. But because the water was so warm we didn't have a big chance of seeing any crocodiles (apparently the crocodiles come out of the water only if the water temperature drops below 26 degrees). Luckily we found one cold crocodile, at first it was swimming not far away from our boat and then decided to climb onto the riverbank - we took some amazing pictures! After a tea break, we went on a walk through the rainforest - it was great experience - just us and the forest. One barbecue and some exotic fruit later, we went for a swim in the Noah Valley Gorge - the water was pretty cold but it still was one great experience. Then our tour guide took us to Cape Tribulation - some more stunning views! The last stop was an ice cream cafe - where we got to taste some unusual but very tasty flavours. All exhausted but very pleased we were dropped back at our hotel.
Last day in Port Douglas was spent relaxing - we finally had a well needed lie-in and a big breakfast. We wandered around the Sunday markets and explored the four mile long beach.
