Australia Day 4: Rainforest Tours

Hi Love Bugs! We visited the Daintree Rainforest yesterday, and boy was it lush! We had a series of interesting experiences to say the least, but it ended up turning out to be a-okay! We started the day off by going to the Wildlife Habitat in Port Douglas. We got to see many native Australian animal species in their natural habitat. We also had the opportunity to feed the wallabies, and hold a koala–being with the animals was my favorite part of the day! We then went to Mossman Gorge which was absolutely beautiful. However, if I were to be honest, I have seen bigger gorges, and better sceneries throughout North Carolina. We were a bit disappointed with the rainforest tour because we did not get what we paid for due to a scheduling error. Nonetheless, we had a great time.We then made our way to Port Douglas for lunch at the beach.Β This however was not an ordinary beach–it prohibited access to the ocean due to sharks, crocodiles, and deadly jelly-fish. Remind me again why there is a resort on this beach? Beats Me! We finished the day by taking a crocodile cruise, and we spotted 2 full grown crocodiles(both male and female) and then 2 baby crocodiles. All of the pictures below were taken on my Nikon D3200, besides the pictures holding the Koalas. We purchased those.

This sign was right outside of Cape Tribulation. The vinegar is meant for jelly-fish stings! Incredibly scary.
