Day 5 Nth QLD - Kuranda to Daintree

So after the butterflies, we stopped in at Barron Falls in Kuranda, not much to write home about, it was running a bit more dramatically last time we were there

We ended up taking the inland route to Mossman and on our way followed signs to Emerald Falls, it was a nice diversion, cool landscape!

I love the changing nature of Australian landscape which I think is quite diverse in Northern Queensland!
