Port Douglas Beaches and Daintree Rainforest
After visiting the Great Barrier Reef, we stayed in Port Douglas, 5 houses down from the beach.
This is where we stayed in Port Douglas... The Dream Catcher
On our first day there, we visited the Daintree Rainforest.

The Daintree rainforest was beautiful and very green. We hiked through the trees along a river. During the day, we went on a crocodile tour. We were very fortunate to see some action. We saw a female crocodile resting on the beach and a huge male crocodile named Fat Albert in the water. As Fat Albert went past the female, she hissed at him and lifted up her head. It was a sign of submission but it sure didn’t look that way. We followed Fat Albert as he crawled up on to the beach. He was huge! We were very happy to not be swimming in that river.

The next day we enjoyed the beautiful beaches of Port Douglas. You cannot see any of the accommodations from the beach so it looked so isolated and pristine.

We went to the Sunday market and drank sugar cane juice and found some jewelry for me. The market overlooked the beautiful coast line. It was definitely hard to leave this beautiful area of Australia.

Today we are heading to the Hunter Valley wine area about 2 hours outside of Sydney. Our trip ends with two days in Sydney. Hopefully we’ll have internet access to be able to share more pictures.
