North Qld Day 3 - Lacey Creek

On Carmen's recommendation we decided to go check out Lacey Creek in Mission Beach. We kind of went down the wrong path and ended up in the middle of the rainforest. Well sort of,  we were still on a well defined track but I don't think it got a lot of use and thus every few steps you would encounter a spider web, smack bang, in your face!
(I let Ben go first :P)

You can probably see by Ben's arms it was super hot and humid, I'd say it's the most I've ever sweated in my life so we were pretty stoked that after a few km's of trekking we came to this...

North Qld beaches might suck due to stingers but there waterholes are amazing, we often found ourselves with no one around either, which was magical!

The Ulysses butterfly, which is a bit of a icon up here, I guess cause they are super pretty and blue!
Did I mention there are a LOT of butterflies up North, which I loved :)
