Port Douglas

We were treated to a wonderful day at Mossman Gorge, thanks to Harry and Margo.

Mossman Gorge:

Nestled in the World Heritage Listed Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge contains the oldest, continuously surviving rainforest on earth.  Just one hectare of the 120,000 hectare forest can contain over 30,000 species of plants and animals. Considered by many to be the evolutionary cradle for much of Australia’s plant and wildlife species, the forest has managed to survive for over 135 million years and, with the right protection, is expected to thrive for generations to come.

We then drove to The Wildlife Habitat Port Douglas:

The Wildlife Habitat is a Wildlife immersion exhibit – an open and interactive environment for guests and animals to mingle in a spacious and natural setting. Visitors wander along elevated boardwalks, observing up close a huge range of flora and fauna as birds fly and roam freely.
