Not much more describes this...

With three people in the car on a roadtrip for 7 days, sometimes the conversation can get a little stale. After all, the average person can not save up enough to talk about and evenly distribute the conversation across the whole trip.

This is not the case when you travel to Port Douglas and the surrounding areas. There was never more than 10 minutes without one of the three of us spotting an opportunity to point, comment wow, then proceed to inform the other two of the sight being witnessed.

From a scuba dive in the Great Barrier Reef, to a outback road drive to Cooktown, to a tropical rainforest canopy walk in Daintree National Park, a week in Port Douglas would never be enough. But alas, with 7 days.... we made the most of it!

    Gr8 page here Mark, it brought back a lot of memories of our visit here years ago. I went in the small sub-big mistake I should've gone skin diving like my family (& you) - then I wouldn't have gotten sea sick LOL !

    Isn't Port Douglas a gorgeous part of FNQ! My parents spend their winters there enjoying the mild weather and shopping at the Sunday market!
