We then went to Daintree National Park, which stretches about a third of the east coast of Queensland. Here we walked through the rainforest and looked at some awesome waterfalls. Fittingly, it rained while we were walking through the rainforest. We saw bush turkeys (a small version of our own stupid animals) and a tiny dragon like lizard
Next, we were off to Daintree river for a boat ride in search of crocs. It wasn't nearly as exciting as Steve Ewin's adventures, but we still had fun. We saw a mother, young, and baby crocodile as well as a herein that is really rare. Apparently we should have been really excited to see him, but it just looked like a big bird to me! After the ride, our tour guide crumpled up a leaf and told us to smell it. After we took a big whiff he told me the locals call that tree the "fart bush". It did smell bad. What a joke to play on the silly girls from the States!
After a packed day we began back to our accommodations. The 11 of us were all staying at different places. Katie's and my stop was the last stop and our driver told us that we had to take "a really shitty road to a really nice place" and it was. We thought we were going to be bounced off of our seats on the way there. Anyway, we stayed at the Cape Tribulation Beach House. It's really nice! We had our own bathroom, blankets (not just sheets), towels, and a refrigerator.
A great day. We met 2 girls from New Hampshire that are currently living in New Zealand, working for a year. We also met 2 girls from Germany here on "holiday" (AKA vacation), and a mother and daughter from Italy.
Tomorrow comes the scarry part...the Great Barrier Reef.
