Fan Palms

These are Fan Palms, making an extraordinary canopy in the rainforest at Cape Tribulation. We walked on the Dubuji Track, mostly timber boardwalk through a sacred indigenous area of coastal rainforest.

It was one of the most wonderful walks we have done, for variety of species, and pleasure of the forest! I took heaps of photos of tree trunks, creeks and scenery, to share with my readers later. But the Fan Palms were the standout!

Imagine the beach just out beyond the mangroves, and the rainforest undisturbed coming right up to it ….. the boardwalk takes you through each section of forest …. right into the rare salt water rainforest. We were far north of Cairns, on a narrow winding road that ends at Cape Tribulation. The road is designed with speed bumps to slow traffic so that injury to the endangered Cassowary is reduced. Even so we met families and couples enjoying the remote location, just like us.

Just one more amazing canopy shot to share with you!

We also visited the Daintree Discovery Centre and ate two lots of local icecream …. loved the Daintree ferry crossing, and had a smashing day yesterday!

  1. Thanks for taking me on your journey to the deep north. I love the patterns of the palms against the air: you’ve captured both the silhouettes and the detail, especially in the first and last one.

  2. I’m a fan ;)… I had to say it. The pics looking up at the palm fans are like gorgeous bright green umbrellas. Daintree icecream… mmm. We have Daintree black leaf tea, and it’s great.
