Life's tribulation

I don't know if any of you have heard of Cape Tribulation in Far North Queensland. Captain Cook named the place after his ship ran aground there.

It's a spectacular tropic rainforest area, rather rustic and untouched. We have to used a very old style of tug ferry to cross the Daintree river to reach it. Unfortunately, the two days we were there, more than 150 mm of rain dumped onto the area. We couldn't see a lot of the area but it has a sense of isolation and primitive charm that calls out for future visit.
