Yet I hate zoos and I don & rsquo;'ll almost never, I don & rsquo; s not always like & rsquo; idea of caged animals, although I know that in some cases and often, zoos involved in the conservation of a lot of & rsquo; species.
J & rsquo; always try to be careful when I travel not to fall into the trap of the promise of & rsquo; a time with animals at all costs. In Polynesia, for example j & rsquo; preferred'd avoid dolphinarium and instead try to see dolphins in their natural environment. Nothing & rsquo; guaranteed, but it's worth it to let the chance to do things.
Here in Australia c & rsquo; rather nice to see how they handle the issue. They are very trendy eco tourism (if you're interested, you can visit this site) and everything is hyper regulated. J & rsquo; therefore I loved my visit to the big park wildlife habitat à Port Douglas, wandering in the middle of birds and kangaroos.
You can take the little koala in her arms in some Australian parks, wildlife habitat Port Douglas en fait partie, c & rsquo; is super box (no more than 30 minutes per day, and not more than 2 consecutive days for each Koala) and I could not do it. J & rsquo; s quite like & rsquo; & rsquo idea that; we say no to tourists. No it n & rsquo; is currently small koalas n & rsquo; longer want.
By cons j & rsquo; spent a lot of time with kangaroos and walibis just walking around you like hot dogs. They have a super funny head, males look like donkeys, and females to small deer. C’est super bizarre…
If you push a little inland starting from Port Douglas found the “Daintree Rainforest” aka the oldest rainforest in the world. It s & rsquo; y feel very small, it does not hurt.
Everything is so huge : the leaves, flowers, trees (Haaan news flash trees c & rsquo; is great waow), lianas. There are a bunch of & rsquo; multicolored birds that roam, local pigeons it looks like this :
They make a noise maboule constantly we sometimes l & rsquo; & rsquo impression that; there is a whole jungle in a tree birds are eggs.
L & rsquo; hotel where j & rsquo; was had rooms in the trees, j & rsquo; have taken advantage of these pretty little creatures for a few days.
Okay I admit that the time that I & rsquo; spent in the j & rsquo corner, have made micro heart attack when I saw a corny move because I freaking my race to see a giant spider. Arachnophobia goodnight. But you realize that everything is gigantic… Good for real, I do not know what m & rsquo; wait, j & rsquo; have not looked particularly which species were found by that, well if you think I would ever part. And I & rsquo; have not seen anything that's end of the & rsquo; history.
So c & rsquo; is beautiful, j & rsquo; not really words, ah si, Barbie T-shirt to go on a boat c & rsquo; was cool, in the oldest rainforest in the world that was really big bitch. J & rsquo; wanted to hide behind trees but I & rsquo; was afraid of beasts.
But I tell you that bullshit, c & rsquo; was crazy and really if you have l & rsquo; & rsquo opportunity; go but you scared of bugs, do you violence because it is really worth. C & rsquo; is just beautiful and the local really want to protect this incredible heritage by educating people. Then his mouth and listen is closed, and we taste all that & rsquo; they give you.
J & rsquo; have tested and I & rsquo; loved
My hotel Silky oaks Lodge. One of the most beautiful places where I & rsquo; have had & rsquo; opportunity to stay, one is in the trees and s & rsquo; asleep listening to the river. Magic.
A tour of the rain forest with a local guide, on a suivi Billy tea Safari, on the rocky tracks of the region. Really nice.
From “paddle surfing” avec Windswell sur la Mossman River, I don & rsquo; have no photos because I want my device, but c & rsquo; is one of the most incredible moments of this trip, standing on his board, it was the river in the middle of this immense forest, c & rsquo; is one of the most beautiful things that I & rsquo; saw.
After a long, very long journey (36h ouch, but n & rsquo; not have the right to complain when you do nice trips), j & rsquo; I landed in Cairns north is d & rsquo; with OZ my ruby slippers Droopy dark circles and a big smile.
Weather interruption : I arrest you right now, c & rsquo; s technically & rsquo; winter in Australia, but in this area of the country, c & rsquo; is the “dry season” as in almost all tropical countries. When c & rsquo; is & rsquo; was with us, c & rsquo; is the right time to go, basically ;)
The program of my first week so, Port Douglas and its surroundings, many beautiful things to see off (the great Barrier Reef) and more inland (rainforest next to Mossman).
Port Douglas is a small seaside town, quiet, unpretentious, which to not do much, stay cool as Australians know to do well and enjoy the sun and sea.
Go to Yacht club (rather a club at the corner cool sailors who drink beer in the sun) late afternoon and going on a little trip at sunset, for example. Or spend a quiet aprem local 4miles beach beach (Finally quiet, they m & rsquo; have some damn the pétoches with their mini killer jellyfish “t & rsquo; concerned was a sheave on the beach kit” “Ah cool ‘o_O”)
And if not nothing to spoil, Port Douglas is very close to LA Great Barrier Reef (The Great Barrier Reef), with a large L because c & rsquo; is the largest in the world, world heritage in & rsquo; UNESCO anyway, not yucky as a postcard…
S can & rsquo; s approach it & rsquo; far enough to go and watch hundreds & rsquo; fish species, sharks and sea turtles. See turtles through its small diving mask that the whining I swear you fout…
Tested and approved
My very cool hotel : QT Port Douglas, grand, clair, nice decor, population super jeune. Really nice if n & rsquo; no desire to take the lead, super mega good food.
A sunset on a yacht : Doug Ryan mustache, the good old Marine friendliest of Yacht club de Port Douglas. Aboard beers, his crew mates s & rsquo; care of everything and he tells you every d & rsquo; stories by learning to take the helm. Simply go to PDYC and subscribe for a stroll, c & rsquo; is cool.
A trip to the great barrier reef for snorkelling and seeing sea turtles and reef sharks (perfectly harmless). Not bad services on offer in Port Douglas, j’ai testé Sailaway Port Douglas which in addition to offering rides actively involved in the protection of the Great Barrier Reef.
Et aussi : eat at Nautilus delicious restaurants or salsa, buy sunscreen coconut almost everywhere, eat at the beach shack before landing at the beach. Enjoy. doing nothing.
