Mossman & Wonga

We stayed the night in a campsite in Port Douglas and got up early the next day and headed straight for 4 mile beach. Once we get over the beastly gears the van actually seems to be working out pretty well with plenty of space for a bed/converted living room and a tiny kitchen area.

4 mile beach is pretty nice but the main thing I can't get over is the temperature of the water! Its like stepping into a warm bath and I just love it!

We left Port Douglas and headed north to Mossman Gorge for a picnic lunch followed by a walk through the rainforest. The heat & humidity in the forest is incredible so we finished off our walk with a dip in rock pools in the gorge - so cooling it was fantastic. We were also lucky enough to see several Ulysees Butterflies which are huge and iridescent blue. I never thought a butterfly could look so pretty.

From Mossman we headed up the road to Pinnacle Village campsite at Wonga beach. Its a really nice campsite with a lovely pool. By the time we arrived there we were so hot again that we just jumped straight in.

We just spent the day today wandering down to the beach, lazing around the pool and sunning ourselves through our 5 layers of factor 30 suncream! 30° again today and we're only 1 week into Spring - what have we got ourselves in for?!
