After much reading and research today we have decided during our stay in Port Douglas in October that we are going to make the most of our car hire and do a "self tour" to Daintree. Does the below sound do-able?
Leave Port Douglas hotel early morning and drive to Mossman Gorge, park up and do the hour self guide walking tour.
Leave Mossman Gorge and drive to Daintree Village, get some ice cream from the famous ice cream shop and then get on a daintree river cruise for 1+ hours.
After the river cruise cross the river by the car ferry and take a drive along the sealed roads leading up to Cape Tribulation, stopping off along the way at various view points and look out spots.
Head back to Daintree Village for a spot of dinner and then return to Port Douglas.
What do you think? Is it too much to do in one day? We are not heavily into discovering the rainforest in huge depth (ie - plant types etc etc) but we would love to soak up the scenery and say we have been to such a natural beauty.
