Down Came The Rain In The Daintree

I know Tropical North Queensland is also called the wet tropics but I came here in the dry season! Well, I’d hate to be here in the wet as it rained, rained, rained for most of my visit 🌦🌦🌦

After leaving the Lions Den Hotel our little group of half a dozen RV’s travelled 200kms for an overnighter at Rifle Creek Rest Area at Mt Molloy before heading to Daintree Village.

I split off from the group on the way to catch up with my lovely friends Juanita and Graham at Port Douglas. Juanita and I were neighbours when I lived on the Gold Coast and we became golfing buddies and great friends.

By the time I arrived at The Daintree Riverview Caravan Park the rest of the group were off on a Crocodile Cruise. I planned to do it the following morning but the rain was relentless so I sadly gave it a miss. The others saw some huge crocs! 🐊

We had 2 nights here and another good pub meal before heading off to the ferry which would take us across the Daintree River to Cape Tribulation. Perhaps I’ll see a crocodile there?
