1 year away from home!

We're away from home 1 year today. We can't believe how fast the time has gone but when we look back we've had the most amazing time - the best year of our far!

We're in Cape Tribulation which is a couple of hours north of Cairns in the middle of a tropical rainforest and beside white sandy beaches.

This morning we took a river cruise on The Daintree going in search of crocodiles. We saw about 8 crocs including the dominant male of the region which is about 5 metres long and also a baby one that would fit in your hand - so cute!

There are Cassowary birds in this region which are about the size of an emu but look more like something out of Jurassic Park with a helmet/horn on their head. They're quite rare and have been known to kill people that have approached them with a claw straight through the heart - not a great way to go! Unfortunately, after looking all day we couldn't find any at all; maybe thats a good thing.
We had a really good night out to celebrate 1 year away with our Israeli neighbours (Dorit & Nimrod!) from the campsite, who we got talking to after Nimrod spotted a Bandicoot beside our van!
