They say this is where the rainforest meets the sea, I say this is also where you can find the best wood-fired seafood pizzas and icecream.
We left the caravan in Cooktown in safe hands, thanks Nicko. Drove south down the Bloomfield Track, I don’t think the track mounts the same challenge today for 4WD enthusiasts as it did in years gone by. There is a new sturdy concrete bridge over the Bloomfield River and most of the steep hill tracks now have sturdy cement road surfaces. So we managed to make it safely to Cape Tribulation with no trouble what so ever. Camped four nights at Noah Beach National Park Camping Ground, in the midst of the Daintree Rainforest.
Time was spend exploring the sights, sounds and smells of the rainforest by the sea, including: Cow Bay Beach, Cape Tribulation Icecream Company, Daintree Entomological Museum (Bug Museum), the Daintree Canopy walk, and much more.
Two further days were spent at Cape Tribulation Camping Grounds, which was a little more upmarket; hot/cold running water, camp kitchen, but most importantly their famous wood fired pizzas.
After six, mainly wet but enjoyable days we returned to Cooktown stopping off along the Bloomfield track at a few of the spectacular locations, including the Wujal Wujal Falls and of course the Lion Den Hotel.
