Port Douglas Tourism News

Tuesday, February 16, 2010

Despite all the rain Cape Tribulation/Daintree/Bloomfield Track are all looking fantastic!

We are going through to Emmagen Creek everyday no problems with flooding. Cassowary's are being sighted regularly, two crocodiles on the River yesterday as well as Boyds Forest Dragons and Buff Breasted Paradise Kingfishers from New Guinea on their breeding migration.

Chillagoe Caves & Outback tour is operating Monday, Wednesday & Friday's, and the outback is green & looking fantastic. Very little rain during the day & not as hot as here on the coast. We are going to Granite Gorge at present instead of the Wetlands as access in is closed for a few weeks due to some flooding earlier this week. Lots of Kangaroos, Wedge Tail Eagles even the odd sighting of the Albino Kangaroo!

We are also doing the Trezkin or Donna Caves as the Royal Arch is closed at present, so a reasonable level of fitness is required due to stairs to climb up to the cave entrance.

Billy Tea Safaris is the longest running 4WD operator to Cape Tribulation and beyond and also now to Chillagoe Caves and Outback. Billy Tea Safaris is now in its 29th year of operation and is a local family owned business by Marilyn and Berrick Barnes. Billy Tea Safaris is also Advanced Eco Accredited.

To welcome her first day back after annual refit. Poseidon was met on arrival at the Agincourt Ribbon Reefs by a rare sighting of a whale in February!

Onboard Marine biologist Herald Pinns identified this large whale as a Bryde's Whales, commonly known as Brutus Whale.

The Bryde's Whale prefer tropical and temperate waters over the polar seas that other whales in their family frequent.

They are largely coastal rather than pelagic. Bryde's Whales are very similar in appearance to Sei Whales and almost as large. "Bryde's whale" is sometimes misheard as "brutus whale". They inhabit tropical and subtropical waters worldwide.

Bryde's whales are considered medium-sized for balaenopterids, dark gray in colour with a white underbelly and grows to 11-12 meters in length with its very small dorsal fin far down its back.

All the guests on Poseidon vessel were delighted at the unexpected encounter on a perfect calm sunny day. Photo taken by Trent, a happy guest onboard.

As locals, we all know that the weather is beautiful here year round and when the rain comes we all love it!!  Our rainforest animals all wander about, our rainforests come alive and our nights are a symphony of frog songs.  Rivers and waterfalls go wild and life is great!

Sure, there may be a slightly higher chance of rain but it's fun wandering around in the warm rain.  Take yourself out of your comfort zone!

People have called me to tell me about the size of the raindrops that bounced off the pavement.  It creates a memorable experience and a sense of adventure. You have never experienced rain until you experience it in the wet tropics and hey World Heritage Rainforest needs torrential rain to keep it growing! We need our beautiful rainforests to remain lush and alive.

Staying in the rainforest in wet weather is brilliant!  It's absolutely beautiful, not to mention the numerous waterfalls that appear during this time.

All activities take place year round in FNQ, we love playing in the rain!

  • Activities such as ATV & Bungy are great fun!
  • Spectacular heli rides over the Barron Falls.
  • View the clouds and mist as you journey on the Skyrail Cableway to Kuranda.
  • Awesome rafting adventures on the Barron and Tully River.
  • Great accommodation & tour deals to be had!

Despite the travel information you may reading in planning your holiday to Far North Queensland, not every day is a wet weather day. We have some beautiful days and quite often the rain only passes through at night, which is a relief to calm the humidity.

This time of year is the best time to snap up some superb tour and accommodation deals, so what are you waiting for?!
