My Adventure Story
At the Cape, the return journey to Cooktown and trip up to Cape Tribulation and down to Port Douglas.
We took the ferry over to Thursday Island- its about an hour and they give a good commentary of the history of the Torres Strait happenings (inc Cook, Bligh etc) as you go. Then a bus trip around the little island.
Absolutely bucketed down just as we were making our way back to the boat. Everyone was drenched.
The rain turned the dusty corrugated cape road a muddy slippery event for a large part of the trip back. By Cooktown, the bikes and gear on the back looked like a large wasp had started to built a nest on the back of the DORA.
2 nights in Cape Tribulation - wet but the rain forest is very interesting. Camped on the beach and in the rainforest. We didnt tackle the famous Bloomfield track from Cooktown to Cape Trib. Very steep creek xings but the major obstacle for us is its thru low jungle with thick vines that can rip all the gear off your roof - we are very vulnerable with the solar panels..
Now enjoying 3 days R&R in Port Douglas - beach, bikes shopping and food.
