Daintree Daydreaming…

We recently returned from a week in the Daintree in the far north of Queensland – way up there in the tropical jungle with the crocodiles (tho we never saw any).We did see lots of amazing butterflies, a spotted tree monitor (the big lizard pictured below), a male cassowary with its chick (a very big flightless bird), a raft of impressive insects, lots of fruit bats, very friendly jungle perch, and, many other things.We stayed at some truly beautiful places and I would recommend a trip up there to anyone looking to get back to primordial nature and even off the grid (yikes! that’s right folks, no mains power, cell phones or, <gulp> interweb)…

We swam in beautiful streams – we were told by the owners of the property that there just couldn’t be crocs here, nevertheless, we were somewhat nervous, despite the amazing setting…

We also took lot’s of walks and some got rides.
