Frost still had a swim.
After an early morning walk, we took a drive up to Mossman Gorge in the Daintree National Park - a beautiful rainforest area in the hills above Mossman where a few crystal creeks roll into the jade green Mossman River.
On June 22nd , 2012, a new visitor center opened and you now park your car at the Mossman Gorge Center, pay for an 'eco-shuttle' ride and wait for the bus. There is a lovely cafe - Mayi Cafe - at the visitors center and you can watch birds from under the wide eaves of the open air cafe seating.
The boys, Mum and I walked the 3km circuit through the rainforest looking at huge buttressed trees, lawyer vines and odd tropical fruit. There were few birds visible in the rainforest - Mervyn saw more on the forest margins - and although Frost considered swimming on the way in he decided not to on the way out!
