Sugar Cane and Cocoa

This post is a bit of a miscellany of photos taken during our stay in Port Douglas and on our way from Port Douglas back to Cairns and on to Brisbane.  The first few photo are from a brief visit to Daintree Village north of Port Douglas, where we had a beer and where the girls bought some post cards.  I wandered around photographing some birds and an orchid.

We also visited a Sugar Cane and Cocoa plantation and listened to a presentation there on growing these two important crops.
