Port Douglas - Cape Tribulation

On a showery day during the second week of our holiday we decided to drive north of Port Douglas to cross the Daintree River by ferry and then continue on to Cape Tribulation.
Our first stop was at Cape Tribulation Beach.
This is definitely an example of where the rainforest meets the sea.
It was low tide so there was plenty of beach to explore.
We then walked to the lookout for a different view.
Back in the car we drove to the carpark of the Dubuji Boardwalk to explore some of the rainforest vegetation.
In this area we were protected from showers by the large palm leaves.
One of the inhabitants of the area are scrubfowl digging among the leaves and mulch.
As in other areas of the rainforest there is a variety of vegetation.
Fungi and moss also grow on trees and logs.
Only part of the boardwalk was open as the boards are gradually being replaced.
Myall Beach was the next place we visited.
We found this pair of birds on the sand.
On the way back to the car it began to rain again. We had lunch at Mason's Cafe before returning to Port Douglas.
