Port Douglas and Daintree, A Shoot by Owen Wilson
Located in the far north of Queensland, lies paradise, lush tropical Rainforest, sandy beach resorts, pristine coral reefs.
Marina Mirage Port Douglas, luxurious yachts, cruise boats and deep-sea fishing charter boats all start here.
Cape Tribulation is the gateway to the Barrier Reef, where you can snorkel, dive, paddle board or kayak.
It’s hard to image going from Lush Rainforest to Barrier reef in a matter of minutes. Cross the Daintree River by car ferry into a lush rainforest.
Daintree rain forest in fact. The world’s oldest rainforest, with tropical plants and wildlife. Crocodiles swim in the Daintree river, they can be seen sunning themselves on the banks or logs.
Walk amid the palms and moss-covered rocks, maybe see a Brush Turkey or even a cassowary if you’re lucky.
There is an amazing scene waiting at every turn when walking through the Daintree Rainforest. There are loads of wonderful secluded areas in this rainforest with romantic swimming holes, tropical climate and lush greenery, what more could one ask for.
Mossman Gorge with its giant granite boulders and moss-covered rocks, part of Daintree National Park. Many hours can be spent just wandering the walking trails, immersing oneself in nature so to speak.
All this located just a short trip from Port Douglas.
Then just to give you even more there is Four-mile beach.
A true tropical paradise, warm climate most of the year, beautiful sunsets.
Caps off an awesome adventure or just a fun day.
For the camera buffs, my kit for this trip was both Nikon D700 and D800 cameras, 24-70mm lens and a 70-200mm lens
