I wake up early to see the Cape Tribulation point, which if you ask me is a bit overrated. I take a few more walks to see the environment. In a way I hope to see a Cassowarry. It's a big prehistorical bird (up to 2 meters) with massive leggs and claws not able to fly. They are endangered and can be very dangerous and even deadly if you cross their path. I spot a small one of 70 cms trying to find food on the ground. It doesn't seem to notice me..
It's high tide and the beach dissappeared completely and only mangroves are left. This looks interesting, a tropical rainforest almost in the sea. I want to take a picture of this and move close to te water.. And suddenly I thought I might wanna stay away from the edge because of the saltwater crocs.. So I took my pictures on a safe distance :)
After this little jungle track it's time to get back to Cairns, enjoy my last long drive before I hopefully sell my car!
