A few years back we went to Cairns (Queensland) for a holiday.
The Daintree River and Rain Forest was about
an hours drive where we took the obligatory
I must confess to being a little disappointed in the Daintree area.
I was expecting huge rain forest trees growing down to
the water’s edge as do the river Red Gums in Victoria.
And I certainly did not expect cleared farming land to be within sight.
Maybe we did no go into the heart of the Daintree,
however, when one is at Daintree village and
on the Daintree River….
There were, however, a few strategically placed
‘do not swim’
signs posted along the course of our cruise.
Taken near Forrest in South West Victoria’s
temperate rainforests, near the Otway Ranges,
this drive through these trees is one of my favourites.
And only about an hour or so from Geelong.
