A lot has happened since the last post. We are now in Darwin and plan on remaining here at least for the next 12 months. Hubby and I both have decent jobs and have moved into our own place. However, inspiration smacked me in the head this morning and told me to finish our story, so here it is.
Thankfully our journey back into civilisation (Cooktown *cough*) we relatively uneventful. The next plan was to head back down to Cairns to collect our roof rack that had snapped off the car in the roll over two week prior. However, as we have skipped Cape Trib on the way up, due to the unseasonal weather, we made the decision to stop there a couple of days on route to Cairns.
Besides the scary, bumpy, windy road into Cape Trib full of speeding cars, we had a lovely 2 full days.
The same owners that owned Punsand Bay at The Tip own Cape Tribulation Camping, which is where we stayed.
So what did we do in Cape Trib? I got up early and took some stunning photos of the sunrising over the water and through the rainforest 🙂
We also went Jungle Surfing through the Rainforest.
And visited a fascinating Exotic Fruit Farm for a tasting, which I loved, and tried some really interesting fruits including:
- Tahitian Lime
- Yellow Sapote
- Dragon Fruit
- Black Sapote
- Guanabana (soursop)
Check out the weird fruits below! But seriously, this was awesome! And for around $25/pp including transport to and from the farm, great value for money!
I wish we had more time to spend at Cape Trib. The activities we could do were nearly endless. Next time we will horse ride on the beach, explore all of the other beaches and natural springs and relax.
Next stop Cairns to fix our car.
