Happy to be away from busy roads enjoyed the peace of the rainforest. Shared dinner in the camp kitchen with two girls from SA one an Occupational Therapist who is taking a year off to travel Oz the other a medical student visiting her friend during uni break. The OT has been working on organic farms in exchange for free board using Willing Workers on Organic Farms Australia (Wwoof) organisation http://www.wwoof.com.au/.

Friday visited Daintree Discovery Centre
The Centre offers visitors many ways to learn about and explore one of the few remaining unspoiled pockets of lowland rainforest in Far North Queensland. Self guided tours with the use of an informative booklet plus an audio device are used as you meander around the many elevated boardwalks. Didn't know that the Daintree Rainforest @ 200 million years old is the oldest rainforest in the world, the Amazon is a baby @ 7 million.

I was hoping that while on the 24m tower we would get mobile coverage and sure enough the sound of messages greeted us as we arrived at the top, not surprising considering the tower was in view.
The owner of the local garage said that if we sat outside the tea plantation we would also get coverage her son goes there for hours then she gets the bill!
