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.
male and female Australasian Figbird
(this is the northern variety with a yellow breast)
Dockrillia teretifolia, an orchid
We also visited a Sugar Cane and Cocoa plantation and listened to a presentation there on growing these two important crops.
