Far North Queensland.

I have returned.
To continue our holiday in Winter 2016..

A few photos of the Daintree in Far North Queensland where there are plenty of Crocodiles in the Daintree River.
The town is rather small and there is a tropical rainforest along the coastline north of the Daintree River which goes to the edge of the sea.

:The rainforest is named after Richard Daintree, an Australian geologist and photographer (1832-1878):

The Daintree River which you go across on a barge.

  1. I would not go very close to that river, however beautiful it may be. I get a lot of respect from crocodiles.

    1. Yes it is a good barge Andrew. Feel safe on it and only takes a few minutes to cross the Daintree River.

  5. No matter how hot and humid, the Daintree River is not the place to cool off unless you have a suicidal moment and desire to be an entree for a "friendly" croc - ha ha.
    Are any of Richard Daintree's (1832-1878) photos on display. They would be rather early photographic shots.

    That 2 weeks break went bloody fast.
    Cheers
    Colin

    1. One would be rather stupid to go for a drip in it.
      Have no idea if Richard Daintree has photos out there, and they would be interesting to see - must do a search on that.

  6. Looks beautiful. I'd be a little nervous boating with so many crocs in the water.

  7. I'd wear a sign that says "old and tough. Do not eat."
