Be Wary Of The Cassowary

The There & Back Again Tour to FNQ

OK ... hidden in the picture is a cassowary who was beside the road with its baby, well, youngster really. Cool.
We went to Mossman Gorge yesterday. Basically “nice” but that’s about it ... maybe it suffices for Port Douglas holidaymakers who don’t want to venture further into the Daintree. Not in the same box as the rainforest we have been living in for the past two weeks.
Our time here is about to come to an end so we crammed a lot into today. We started with a repeat visit to the Discovery Centre where Alphie was determined to go to the top of the Observation Tower. After that we went to check out Noah Beach before lunch.
We had lunch at Whet .... excellent ... cauliflower and scallop soup, seared tuna, crab tagliatelle, lime-and-coconut cake, a crisp bottle of Capel Vale verdello,a charming Scottish backpacker waitress ... all in a rainforest setting. No wonder it is highly recommended by Lonely Planet.
We then picked up Mac and went for another beach walk at Cow Bay. Tomorrow we start packing up camp ready to head out on Friday to the Atherton Tableland.
