The Marrja Walk and the Bloomfield Track were highlights today.
When you’re up this way be sure you do this excellent walk.
Neat rope – would make climbing that tree easy!
Rainforest with Oliver Creek flowing through.
Sheltered from above by the fan palm. Excellent boardwalk with lots of informational signage.
More sculptures in nature. A strangler fig.
There’s one in every crowd! I wondered how many little aboriginal children climbed that Strangler Fig in years gone by.
Mum used to grow these.
Such a pretty basket. The epiphytes, growing on mangroves.
Oliver Creek from the Marja Boardwalk.
Getting arty with mangrove flowers.
Stand still here and you’ll begin to grow – or something will grow on you.
Where the forest meets the sea. Daintree Beach
The beginning of the Bloomfield Track is the beginning of many kilometers of dirt roads over the next few weeks.
It wasn’t long before we came to our first river crossing; the first of many.
The Bloomfield Track is very picturesque; also very steep at times.
And UP we go.
Such a pretty drive!
This bridge across the Bloomfield River marks the end of the Bloomfield Track as we enter Wujal Wujal.
The Bloomfield Falls – breathtaking! I can’t imagine what they’d be like in the wet season.
We made it!
